The Seymour community has a rising population which consists of active-duty members, reservists, civilians, spouses and children. The youth are a vast majority on base, and play a part in keeping the community involved. Recently the base has opened a new indoor playground called the Kiddie Hawk, a Splash Pad and installed the new bouldering rock, adding family-friendly features to the Team Seymour community .
The 4th Force Support Squadron Outdoor Recreation section partnered with Air Force services and provided the base with a child-friendly “rock climbing” boulder wall. Ryan Wurdinger, Outdoor Recreation assistant director, lead coordination efforts to setup the new attraction.
“We have open ears when it comes to the community,” said Wurdinger. “Giving back to our customers and providing for the community is what our profession is known for. We hope to encourage and promote a healthy lifestyle for children with this new boulder.”
