This is the current complete outside area for children to play which does not meet current state standards. Without lawn, students are to play in wood chips that give them splinters and fill their shoes with dirt.
The new recreation area will be expanded by several feet. The ground will be covered in heavy-duty astro turf (photo below). The new turf requires little to no maintenance and is used on professional outdoor soccer fields. (Our current wood chip systems requires additional chips added annualy at a cost of $3000.)
There will be areas for each age group to play or gather with more open space for field games.
