Back to School & Play! New Aquila Elementary Playground

Monday, August 28th, 2023

Last week Pope’s education team joined St. Louis Park Public Schools in celebrating the opening of the new Aquila Elementary playground.

This project was part of the school district’s 2022 $135 million bond referendum to restore, repair and update facilities.

Aquila Elementary School’s existing playground was replaced with inclusive equipment and sensory-friendly features for the best part of childhood – play!

We’re happy to have been able to support St. Louis Park Public Schools and Aquila Elementary School to get this fun feature ready for the 2023-2024 school year.
