Stevenson Elementary unveils new playground
Posted 09/06/2017 12:20PM


Students at Stevenson Elementary School had a wonderful surprise waiting for them on their first day back to school.  Principal Daryl Vossler, surrounded by excited students, unveiled a new playground at Stevenson on September 5, 2017. The new playground project totaled about $40,000 for new equipment, construction and landscaping.

The school’s old playground was relocated to make room for new parent student drop off and pick up parking. Plans for creating the new parking for parents was part of a levy that Fridley community approved in 2015 to enhance a safer environment for students. An exciting addition for the Stevenson students was the brand new set of swings. Last spring, Stevenson Elementary students took a vote on what type of equipment they wanted and swings was one of the most popular items. Students could barely contain their excitement when Vossler announced that an additional six swings would be added to the playground within the first few weeks of school.

The project was made possible by contributions from the district, as well as community members and organizations.

“It’s really been a community effort,” Vossler said. “We are really grateful for the support we received from so many people.”

Vossler started a GoFundMe page to allow for community members to contribute to the cause. Over $2,000 has been raised toward a $3,100 goal. In addition to the personal donations, community organizations that donated to the project include the Fridley Parks and Recreation Department, Fridley Lions Club, and Stevenson PTO.
