Update on Bruce Monroe @ Park View Playground

D.C. Public Schools open on Monday August 22, 2011, and it looks like the kindergartners at the Park View School won’t have to do without a playground as previously thought. A month ago it looked like the small playground at the southeast corner of the school would be out of service until October. The equipment was in need of repair and no money for new parts had been identified.

In the past month, luckily, the Office of Public Education Facilities Modernization (OPEFM) was able to find the money to replace the playground and has been actively working to get the playground up and running. Below are some photos of the new playground equipment as the site nears completion.

    The retaining wall they’ve built looks beautiful. This may sound like an ignorant question, but is this playground opened to kids outside of the school, outside of school hours? Or will they be putting up a tall fence on top of that retaining wall, to keep the playground reserved for schoolground use?

      It looks like they are putting up a fence today. Let’s see if someone from the school community chimes in for how accessable the lot will be.

    We used it this evening. I think it’s probably fine if the school’s not open.
