Woodstock Elementary School
The children at this school had an old, tired set of wooden playground equipment that was long past its prime, together with a huge paved area that caused massive water, ice, and runoff problems. Basically, the kids had little to do and were constantly bored.
We Worked closely with the playground committee using a comprehensive design process which resulted in a beautiful design incorporating mountains, foothills, and play elements built into the existing and new hills.
Our construction team swung into action, and a short time later, shallow caves, forts, climbing walls, upper body play elements, a gaga pit, accessible woods trail path, big boulders, and many other play and learning features were installed and now totally engage the children and visitors to the community. During the winter, the children now have several areas for snow sledding and a place for an ice slide. The newly configured, and very much smaller paved area includes basketball and foursquare.
All this was accomplished with the first phase of fundraising. The committee is planning on raising more funds in the future to purchase additional play and learning elements. Because they have a comprehensive plan, they will know exactly where to place these new elements.
As is usually the case, we provided input to the landscape team that was responsible for the new landscaping around other parts of the school.
