Penrose-St. Francis partners with Cripple Creek-Victor School District to build community playground

EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. — Penrose-St. Francis Health Services has partnered with Cripple Creek-Victor School District to create an outdoor playground at Cripple Creek-Victor Junior/Senior High School.

The project is made possible through a $126,000 one-year grant from The Colorado Health Foundation.

The playground is intended to actively engage students, teachers, parents and community members, who were all involved in the design and development of the playground from the project’s early stages.

The school designated approximately 10,000 sq. ft. for the playground, which includes an obstacle and fitness course and a climbing structure.

The new playground will be accessible to students and teachers during school hours and to community members during non-school hours. The playground was completed just in time for the start of the 2017-2018 school year and celebrated at an inauguration Monday, August 14.
