Carlos Elementary School Playground Project
Organized by: Laura Knudsen
When our school's parent group looked into adding a new piece of equipment to our playground we found out we were in for more than we bargained for. We discovered growing safety issue with equipment that was deteriorating and missing piece. Our project needed to expand.
We are now attempting to renovate the entire playground. Some equipment will be reused. Our swings will be replaced. Unsafe equipment will be removed and will be replaced with a new play structure. One of the biggest expenses will be replacing the pea rock surfacing with a poured rubber surface to increase safety and accessibility.
This is a huge undertaking for our small community. But the investment is worth it for our much loved playgound is used year round by children and members of our community.
