Woodland School installs play structure

Woodland School in Ladera has installed a play structure, designed for children ages 5 to 12, that replaces equipment dating back to the 1950s, according to Anita Grossman, director of development.

The new structure was fully funded by proceeds from the school's Oct. 23 auction, she said.

Designed by Miracle Playsystems in Alamo, California, the structure has a covered deck, a sloped climbing wall, climbing poles, ladders and a slide, she said.

"Our goal was to offer a play structure that would entertain and stimulate children of all abilities and be an asset to the Ladera community," said John Ora, head of school, in a statement. "We are grateful to our parents, faculty, staff, community members and over 75 businesses who generously supported the auction."

About 260 students in preschool through eighth grade attend Woodland School, a co-ed, non-denominational, independent day school located at 360 La Cuesta Drive in Ladera.
