On August 24, New Albany-Plain Local Schools invited PTO families to the new playground on the learning campus to offer their kids a chance to explore the new equipment. Representatives from Midstates Recreation, the designer and installer of the equipment, were on hand to demonstrate many of the new elements on the playground. They helped kids and families safely explore and experience these new opportunities for recess and fun.
Earlier this year, New Albany City Council approved the contribution of $250,000 toward the purchase and installation of one of the recreational pavilions at the playground. The pavilions will offer shade during recess along with options for outdoor learning space. They will also be available for use to the community after school hours.
