Playgound Improvement Project

The Highland Park Elementary School PTA is in the process of updating the 2016 master plan for the play area which resulted in the new net climber, boulder wall-scramble, salmon fence-art mural, benches, rain garden, and garden boxes. The final concept plan for the master plan update is shown here and is the result of all the comments and feedback we received earlier in the master planning process. We appreciate your participation.
