Chippewa Falls (WQOW)- Construction has started at Southview Elementary in Chippewa Falls for a barrier-free playground.
Tuesday is day two of construction, and principal Sara Denure said the new playground will accommodate all students whether they have a walker, cane or wheelchair.
Denure said they have two shifts helping to get the construction finished with 10 to 12 people on each shift.
She said the goal is to get the playground done by Wednesday.
"We had a lot of unpacking to do yesterday, but we’re able to get some of the cement poured last night so that the poles could be ready to be worked on today, so, we’re making really good progress. We have the platforms built and we’ve been assembling all the other pieces off to the side, and they’ll be ready to be attached in just a little while," Denure said.
Denure said some of the new things students will get to enjoy on the playground include a climbing web, unity rocker and hoopla swing.
She said right now they have enough volunteers for the project, but if you’re interested in helping you can reach out to Southview Elementary officials.
