Van Horne Elementary
The Parent Advisory Committee at Van Horne Elementary School consulted Skala Design to help them add natural elements to their school grounds. Many features were recommended for installation including trees, low planting, logs and boulders for play and seating. In addition, the overall amount of hard surface on the playground is being reduced by blurring the edges with additional planting between new play equipment and the asphalt play area. In addition, the Vancouver School Board has recently approved a new design for a garden on the lower soccer field that will be installed this year.
