Playgrounds now open at all 53 elementary schools

Check out this video about Arlington ISD’s new playgrounds, open now at all 53 elementary schools.

Every elementary school received two new playgrounds, one for pre-K through first grade and the other for second through sixth grade. Kooken Education Center was the only exception with just one playground because all of its students are 3- and 4-year-olds.

The playgrounds were designed with teacher and student input and include shade structures, accessible play equipment and rubber surfacing. While the equipment is standard from campus to campus, each school got to make its own color selections.

Gone for good are wood chips, pea gravel and aging play equipment.

The playgrounds were all funded by the 2019 Bond and installed during the last three years. McNutt Elementary’s playgrounds were the last to open earlier this year.
