WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (WSAW) - The Wisconsin Rapids School District says by the start school year Woodside Elementary will be home to a new inclusive playground.

The outdoor play, learning, activity center, or OPLAC is designed for students with and without disabilities to play and learn alongside one another.

It will also be open to families outside of school hours. Future phase plans include an outdoor classroom- learning center and pickleball courts.

In all, the project will cost $1.7 million, but more than a million of that was donated by the Legacy Foundation.
