Two new playgrounds were built for Win Ferguson Elementary this summer.
Construction for the playgrounds started back in 2015. The front playground passed its final inspection and received its formal letter of compliance on August 30.
The back playground is nearing completion. There is still some landscaping and finishing touches to be done. It should be ready for students within the next week.
The total cost of both playgrounds was just over $340,000.
"Elk Island Public Schools is very proud of these two new school playgrounds and hope students and the community receive much enjoyment with them throughout the years ahead," said Darcie Bennett, manager of contract services.
A new playground for SouthPointe School also finished construction for the new school year.
Elk Island Public Schools' next project is a playground for Davidson Creek Elementary.
