In 2014 the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation began the process of designing a new playground for their Lillian Schmitt Elementary School in Columbus, Indiana. Snider Recreation came alongside and helped them design a playground that would get their students on the move!

The school worked on obtaining playground grants that would help in the cost of the equipment. Snider Recreation worked to design a playground that would be installed in phases, to defer costs into different fiscal budgets.

Our team started with Phase One of the playground improvement in the spring of 2015. This phase added freestanding spinners, the Comet and Swift Twist. Along with a play structure designed for building healthy, active kids! This unit included agility equipment such as the Twisting Traverse, Agility Arc and Healthy Hammock. It added the overhead Horizontal Ladder so the students can swing their way to building arm strength, a Swift Glider to quickly slide away and the ever popular Extreme Cyclone Spinner.

Phase Two began in 2016 with the removal of the old playground structure and the installation of the new structure. This Phase brought the slides! You will find the students racing down the Triple Viper slides and bumping down the Rock ‘n Roll slide during outdoor time. This structure is tied into the Phase One structure with an Amped Link climber. The students love climbing new heights on the Steep Peak climber and hanging out on the Balcony. One thing is for sure; the students are starting to wonder what Phase Three of the new school playground will bring, but this is where the story will be continued…
