Catharine Blaine K-8 is getting a new playground this summer.
The new metal and plastic structure will be ready when school opens. The old play structure was rusted and considered unsafe. The new equipment features bright colors and will have two slides, monkey bars, a suspension bridge and climbing elements. The total cost of the project is around $30,000 and the money is coming from a neighborhood grant as well as the Blaine PTA and Magnolia Community Council.
Volunteers are needed to help get the playground ready. Here is the schedule:
Install new playground equipment: Saturday, July 26, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Pour concrete, build wheelchair access: Monday, July 28, 5 to 8 p.m.
Spread gravel and woodchips: Monday, Aug. 4th, 4:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Spread woodchips: Wednesday, Aug. 6th, 4:30 to 8:30 p.m.
