A Ripon elementary school wants to expand its nature playground.  The principal at Barlow Park Elementary/Journey Charter School says the plan to expand the playground to incorporate larger, permanent features has been in the works for more than a year.   Principal Tanya Sanderfoot says many of the structures date back more than 25 years and are in need of replacement.   One large structure was removed a couple of years ago after It broke, prompting the discussion of a nature playground.
