Perez said the community has stood behind the elementary school throughout the effort to improve and redesign Paw Prints Park.
“The parents’ response has been great.”
For Rylee, playing in the fields behind the school has been fun.
“But I’d like our playground back,” she said.
“It’s satisfying to see it being re-created,” Lauzun said. “It’s ready now. We just feel really happy about how it looks and works.”
Paw Prints Park even has a covered pole-barn, which will serve as an outdoor classroom.
The sturdy enclosure will be dedicated to retired Principal Richard Retrosi at 5 p.m. Friday.
The public is welcomed to join in for the dedication, and take a few minutes to check out the new playground.
