Big playground improvements coming to Bethel

New covered playground structures are coming to Clear Lake, Fairfield, Irving, Malabon, Meadow View and Prairie Mountain schools! These long-awaited playgrounds will allow to go outside to play, even when it’s raining.

Architects and engineers recently visited schools and finalized the location of the covered play structures, which will be built this fall near current playground equipment. A supply chain delay for acquiring steel has pushed the project back from its original summer construction schedule.

The covered play area is being made possible through the Bethel bond measure, which was passed by voters in November 2020 and did not increase anyone’s tax rate.
