Dedicated Peninsula parents and community members have been tediously working behind the scenes with depave.org to
develop a plan to remove pavement and add more trees to the playground.
Early in the 2015-16 school year, the playground will receive much
needed shade on the south side of the south wing. In late September
2015, volunteers will be removing sections of pavement to create tree
wells along the south side. Later in the fall, trees will be planted.
On the west side of the playground, we’ll be removing more pavement to
connect the existing tree wells. Depave has assisted with funding the
soil testing, pavement cutting and disposal, as well as serving as a
community facilitator. With the help of PPS, Portland Parks & Rec;
and Peninsula parents Daniel Walker, Carrie Andrews and Monika Roxburgh,
this little dream project is now a reality! We’ll be looking for
volunteers early in the fall to help with the pavement removal and
| Our Rain Garden is also thriving!
