Old Trail School Outdoor Classroom
The Marilyn and Tom Merryweather Outdoor Classroom on the campus of the Old Trail School enhances and expand the school’s commitment to experiential and nature-based learning.
The 2,000 square foot facility features an outdoor covered classroom with open seating for up to 50 students, an indoor multipurpose space for another 49 students, and support areas. Perhaps the most dynamic feature, however, is an accessible green roof that shelters the spaces below. Made from timber, steel, glass, and concrete, the design is meant to blend with the surrounding National Park but in its own modern form.
