Annandale Elementary School

Annandale, MN USA


Playground Overview

To match its new school building, this elementary school in Annandale, Minn., installed two new playgrounds. The result matches their request for playstructures that are physically challenging and make kids think. Before, during and after school, kids flock to both the PlayBooster® playstructure and the Evos® playsystem where kids ages 5 to 12 find opportunities for climbing, spinning, jumping, sliding and creating their own imaginative play. A personalized sign featuring the school’s mascot provides a sense of community. Speaking of community, parents, teachers, citizens and the Annandale Lions Club all turned out to help build both playground areas.
