Grand Junction, CO - On the last day of school, May 30, 2019, Tope Elementary School broke ground on a revamped playground that will be ready for the start of the 2019-20 school year!

Students who just finished first-grade started the project with an idea in kindergarten. As part of a class project, they thought of ways to solve the problem of having a hot playground. They looked at other playgrounds for inspiration, spoke to construction and design professionals, and made a prototype.

The new playground will add shade structures, swings, and a track; replace rocks with wood chips; and replace old, metal equipment with new climbing and play structures.
