Playground Closed This Summer for Renovation!

Playground Closed This Summer for Renovation!
Posted on 05/20/2019
Play ParkAs you know, we keep our playground open most summers for kids to use like a neighborhood park. This summer, though, we’ll need to close the playground to begin our renovation work!

We will be reworking the ground and play surface to expand the woodchip fall zones, making new planter benches around our trees, and beginning the installation of new equipment. Sadly, a structural analysis of the viability and safety of the frame below the existing wooden structure has revealed that we cannot, as we had planned, replace the outer boards with Trex, but must instead replace it after all. We are searching for a fitting replacement for that segment of the playground for summer installation. One of our top choices is another playhouse-like structure, made from reconstituted wood. After the summer’s work, which we hope to complete before the opening of school, we will give Steve Wood and Concrete Couch the go-ahead to begin creating the additional structures he and our students and parents/guardians designed in the charettes this year. These will be community builds--most likely starting with a tire dragon fifth-graders designed--during the course of the school year, so we can all work together to create fun spaces for our kids!
