Playground Project

Hello Acadia Families, 

The Playground Committee is super excited to share the NEW Playground Design.  This design was created from student, teacher and committee feedback; as well as guidance from the experts at Park 'n Play.  

Some of the New Playground highlights are:

  • rubber surfacing
  • inclusive accessibility
  • high focus on the flow of the equipment to maximize play
  • equipment for ages 5-12 ranging in all levels physical activity
  • equipment is customized to our circle of courage colors

How can you help?
