Just in time for the new school year, parents and staff came together to get a new, second playground to be built at Basswood Elementary - Maple Grove, MN in Maple Grove.
“With a school of over 1,000 students, we had a need for more play space to accommodate all of our students. The addition of a second playground will help with this,” Basswood Elementary Principal Patrick Smith.
Three large slides, including a large tube slide, web climber, tire swings, and a seated zip cruise were installed at the end of August by parent volunteers, community members, and staff with the guidance of staff from Midwest Playscapes.
