Manhattan - Kansas Lee Elementary

When the Lee Elementary school was renovated a few years ago, an increase in the number of students increased the demand on the playground. This increased demand took its toll on the playground area. The school knew it needed to update the playground, providing a more functional area where the kids could get more exercise and be more engaged in playground activities.

Budget $200k
Age Range 5yrs - 12yrs
Location Manhattan, Kansas
Swings Swinging is very important for childhood development.
Playground Update

The maintenance department at Manhattan-Ogden USD 383 had previously worked with ABCreative at several other schools in the district and was eager to get started on the update.


The school district removed all but one play piece from the playground.


ABCreative provided:

-Design and lay-out of the playground

-Installation of Playground Grass by ForeverLawn

-Addition of three new playground structures

-Correcting drainage and sloped area issues


The new design and lay-out helped create play areas for different age groups by clustering the new equipment accordingly.


For grades 3 to 5, the school added the Berliner Igloo Climber and Flubber Cube.


For grades 1 and 2, the Jupiter connected to the Spaceball via a suspension bridge also offered slide opportunities and freestanding chin-up bars.


Benches were added in key locations allowing comfortable supervision locations.

Colorful Nodes Unlimited color combinations are available, and are used at Lee Elementary.
Banister Slide Many options are available for sliding. Check out this banister slide!
