Playground Surface

Dec 10, 2022

The poured in place rubber surface of the playground has been installed!

Getting this done before the winter means it won't have to be delayed until warmer weather in the spring.

We also have a new set of aerial photos by Tom Sleeper with some great views of the building and the playground.
