After months of fundraising, Semiahmoo Trail Elementary has a new playground.
The South Surrey school, at 3040 145A Street, will celebrate the new playground during a “Family Barbecue” event set for Sept. 24, at 6 p.m.
The event will include an official ribbon-cutting, cake and other activities.
The new playground – which cost $81,000 – is a “fort-style” structure that features an arch bridge, wobbly pirate’s plank, stairs, a climbing ladder, fireman’s pole and slides. As well, the playground includes a 12-foot tall rope-climbing structure.
The old playground was removed last year because it no longer met the appropriate safety guidelines.
