  • With baseball season underway, we’ve noticed many families enjoying time on our playgrounds after school hours.  Children and families are always welcome to enjoy the playground after school.  If you are on the playground and you use our sandboxes, please place the cover back when you’re done.  We want to keep our sandbox safe and clear and free of any small critters and their waste. Thank you!
