2024-2025 GCMS Playground Expansion

We are happy to present our vision for the expansion of the Glacier Creek Middle School playground! 


Phase 1 - 2700 sq. ft. Playground Ridge Expansion

- Estimated Cost $164,000

(not pictured - New ADA Pathway from parking lot to red rubber surfacing)


The Obstacle Course Structure includes 12 different play elements.  The red poured-in-place (PIP) rubber surfacing area includes a large climber/spinner, chair spinner, and wheelchair accessible hand cycle.  This section is designed for greater inclusivity for all of our students.

Phase 2 - “Inclusive Orbit” Installation/Resurface and Repair(or replace) Gaga Ball Pit
- Estimated Cost $50,000 - $85,000 (depending on surfacing option)


The Orbit will sit near the existing Gaga Pit and is fully accessible for our wheelchair bound students with a new access path (not pictured) extending from the pavement.  First photo shows the Orbit with a full Gaga Pit replacement and full 18,000 sq ft PIP surfacing option ($85K)

Aside from seeking Community donations, we have secured a $25,000 pledge from MCPASD and we are applying to grants for additional funding as well.  The sooner we can raise funds, the sooner we can bring this fantastic play structure to our school community!
