Inspiring play in south Lakewood

New playground unveiled


Following months of work by South Lakewood Elementary staff, students, the PTA and parents, the school celebrated the unveiling of its new playground on Nov. 17. 

The school  received a $110,000 grant from Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) as part of its School Yard Initiative program to make improvements to the playground. The cost for the project will be about $300,000.

"This was a community effort, and the thing about volunteering is it so often inspires others to do the same," said Tina Klismith, a member of the PTA and leader of the project. "You might think serving others is work, but it's not when you see the reactions."
