From the 2017 Auction we raised money to acquire new equipment for the Capitol Hill playground. Over the spring and summer our PTA team worked with PPS to source and plan for the installation of the new equipment. After delays in manufacturing due to the new steel tariffs and lots of public works projects in our region we are finally getting an installation timeline.
Our PPS Project Manager let us know that we should expect our new playground equipment delivery in the first few weeks of November! Once the equipment arrives, removal of the old equipment and installation of the new should begin. Our contractor is excited to get to work, the estimated construction time is just two weeks.
The kids are going to love watching the process.
The new equipment includes a 7-post Netplex climbing structure similar to the one in this video.
We're also getting new music equipment similar to what you'll see in this video.
Here's a rendering of the equipment.
Thank you to the amazing and generous support of our community we're able to bring this new equipment to the children and community for many years of future fun and play.
