Two Thumbs Up!
Two thumbs up for the new play spaces at West School! After a year of planning and preparation, the Glencoe Park District partnered with School District 35 to replace the playground at West School. The joint project includes a natural play area for 2-5 year olds as well as a large, universally accessible playground with slides and play panels for 5-12 year olds.
“From start to finish, the West School playground project has been a stellar example of intergovernmental cooperation to support the needs of our community. We have been so pleased to work closely with the team at the Park District to ensure the new resources provide engaging new experiences for the children and parents of Glencoe,” said Catherine Wang.
“Our goal was to create a multi-sensory smorgasbord of opportunities for kids to engage in free play through sight, sound, touch, and smell,” said Lisa Sheppard, Park District Executive Director.
West Park will complete in time for school.
