West Woodland’s new playground, rain garden dedicated

by | Oct 27, 2010

West Woodland Elementary at 5601 4th Ave. NW dedicated its improved playground and new rain garden this morning. Here’s the student choir singing.

And here’s Deputy Mayor Darryl Smith shaking hands with West Woodland Principal Marilyn Loveness.

The refurbished playground includes play equipment and a running track made of porous asphalt. The students helped plant a rain garden of native shrubs and plants to divert runoff from the city sewer system. The rain garden will be incorporated in the fourth- and fifth-grade curriculums.
Thanks to Sheila for the photos!
