About The Design

Site Plan

To better serve both the students and surrounding neighborhood community, the Hyde Park School Community Play Yard committee has developed a plan that goes well beyond simply replacing the existing structure and has instead created an engaging, dynamic, aesthetically pleasing space for our entire community to enjoy. The design for the new space includes the following highlights:

  • Replacing the existing play structure with a new multilevel structure with a variety of engaging elements
  • Adding synthetic playground turf under the play structure and throughout the southwest corner of the site incorporating playing mounds and a foam safety surface underneath
  • Adding a two tiered outdoor teaching and gathering space
  • Adding a seating wall around the play structure
  • Resurfacing the sport court on the west side of the school and adding new multipurpose goals
  • Replacing the asphalt in the front of the school with grass
  • Adding several shade trees and landscaping throughout the site
  • Adding an irrigation system to the grass and landscaped areas
