the project

Snowden School's PTO has launched a campaign to fund a new school playground and recreation area that will be used by its 1500+ students and people from the school's surrounding neighborhoods.  The new area will incorporate more modern playscapes, additional trees and vegetation that will provide shade, and recreational equipment that will encourage physical activity.

the steps

Several local architecture firms have presented design, fundraising and budget proposals for this project.The firm chosen will collaborate with students, teachers, administrators, coaches, parents and neighbors to create the best design to meet the needs of everyone.  The existing playground will be expanded and completely redesigned and the new greenspace will provide a place for learning, play and exercise.  The project's strategic, long-term plan will be finalized in Spring 2015 and the project will be executed in phases.

why we're doing it

Our school playground equipment is outdated and the space dedicated to it is quite small.  Snowden's campus needs a more innovative and useful recreational space for its studens and the community.
