The Sycamore Valley Elementary School community celebrated its new kindergarten playground with a ribbon-cutting event at the Danville campus Wednesday.
The school district project, completed during the summer break, added a series of features to the play area, including a new state-of-the-art play structure, tunnels, tricycle course, "shark shack," sandbox, fencing and pavement.
Sycamore Valley principal Cher Situm said she's thrilled with the new playground and with the support the project received from school district officials and community and parent groups.
"It is a true gift to see our children interacting socially with their peers while building essential physical motor skills in kindergarten," she said in a statement.
District officials noted key financial support from Kids' Country executive director Stacy Litteral, who donated $11,500 to the project. Kids' Country is Sycamore Valley's after-school child care provider.
The campus is located at 2200 Holbrook Drive, off Camino Tassajara near the Sycamore Valley Regional Open Space Reserve.
