Maple Grove Rotary Club Builds a Community Music Park at Town Green


Sounds of spontaneous creativity can be heard in the new Maple Grove Rotary Music Park. Nestled in at Town Green near the library and outdoor amphitheater, this new music park provides a place to meander, relax and create music. The music park includes six specially made, weather resistant instruments laid out to create complimentary tones. These permanent instruments are accessible to would-be musicians of any age and require no special skill to play. There are no sour notes, only the sweet sounds of families and friends, young and old, a community making music together. The idea to build a musical park came out of the Maple Grove Rotary Club’s 2009 five-year visioning plan.

 


Millstone Creek

Millstone Creek: Columbus, Ohio. “The first time I heard Freenotes instruments being played, I was blown away by their sound quality.  They are beautiful instruments that make beautiful sounds.  And the best part is they have been designed to withstand the heavy use and weather conditions of being outdoors.  They have even figured out how to ensure that no one walks away with the mallets,” says Mara Kaplan of Accessible Playgrounds. “I am very impressed with Freenotes’ commitment to ensuring that people with disabilities have an opportunity to experience the thrill of making music, but also the respectful and well-researched way they discuss different disabilities.”
