Building A New Playground


At Rainbow Mountain, we are building a new playground to encourage students to spend more time outside and to beautify our campus.

The frame of the wood structures is made from locust that was already "dead."  

They reclaimed it for the playground.

Under contruction as part of the playground is the climbing tunnel.  

It is made from a recycled culvert.

To fill in unlevel areas, workers added old concrete instead of using new concrete.

The whole design was created to blend with nature and become a focal point for our campus.

The Results: A playground that beautifies our campus and creates inviting spaces for children to play outdoors.

This is the Gnome Village - recently completed!

The wooden structures mimic a village in the woods.

The idea is that the Gnome Village exists as part of the natural landscape of our campus.  Since the village was 

completed (with the exception of a few minor details, such as the bridge you see), children, families and staff have already taken advantage of it: they have been playing in, on and around the wooden structures - it's like everyone spends even more time outside.
