Ryerson Public School, located in Old North, has a naturalized area as part of their playground. The naturalized area has a stage-like platform where children play and perform, surrounded by berms and shade trees and shrubs.

In the Fall of 2005, Ryerson teamed up with ReForest London to add 4 new shade trees and 12 shrubs. The trees border the ashphalt play area and will provide shade during the hot fall and spring days. Shrubs were planted around the trees to protect them and add more structure to the space.
