Planning is underway to build a new playground at Acadia Elementary School
The playground at Acadia Elementary School, located in the heart of Acadia, is one of the most
utilized playgrounds in the community, welcoming families from all over Acadia and beyond.
Unfortunately, the existing playground has come to the end of its lifespan. Replacement parts
for the decades-old structure are no longer available and components of the playground are
slowly being decommissioned as they break down, or no longer meet safety codes.
The Acadia Parent Advisory Society Playground Committee has been planning and fundraising
to build a replacement playground, in hopes that construction can begin this summer.
The approximate cost of the new playground is $295,000 and to date, we have raised $172,000
through proceeds from casinos, in-kind donations, grants and other fundraising efforts.
We are looking to our community to assist us to fundraise the remaining $123,000 required to
build the new playground and can provide a tax receipt for any private or corporate monetary
