On Tuesday, August 1st, 2017 the playground at Winn Elementary School in East Austin was destroyed by fire. The school was not damaged, but the playscape was destroyed and is deemed structurally unsafe.
The playscape at Winn Elementary was destroyed by a fire on August 1, 2017. Damage to the structure was so intensive that the structure and surrounding area has been deemed unsafe and is currently fenced off from the community.
How You Can Help
In an effort to continue to offer opportunities for outdoor play, Winn is asking for community support to rebuild the playscape and purchase equipment such as jump ropes, soccer balls and bean bag games to encourage student activity during outdoor play despite the lack of a play structure.
The longterm goal is to transform and improve the schools' outdoor space by building a new playscape and adding additional age-appropriate play structures. Funds raised for the campaign will help rebuild, improve and expand the options for outdoor play at Winn Elementary. Your investment today will support student outdoor play, provide opportunities for social development and improve the physical and emotional well-being of our students.
