NewImage The original wood playground at Lewis Elementary has to be decommissioned for safety reasons and is being replaced with a nature-based play space. There will be logs for sitting on and jumping to, a colorful and fully ADA accessible “river” walkway for all to access the play space, permanent all-weather instruments and more! Portland Public Schools has committed to fund the decommissioning and accessibility features, Lewis PTA has raised $15,000, Lewis Students have raised $1,500, and we need your help to make this a creative and exciting new play space for the entire community to enjoy.
