Wharton DLA Playground Updates
Your generous donations to our Wharton Eagle Runs and DanceFit by Boosterthon have allowed us to make additions to our Spark Park and begin the process of building our upper grades playground. Read on for playground updates and get ready to help us reach our fundraising goal for the 2023 Wharton Eagle Run, so we can continue building out our playgrounds.
Our lower grades playground has been designated a Spark Park, which means that the park is open to the public after school hours until dark and on weekends and holidays. Additional equipment to improve our Spark Park was installed in June 2022.
New Upper Grades Playground
In December 2021, Wharton DLA PTO ordered equipment for the first phase of the upper grades playground. Equipment has finally been delivered, and the playground is scheduled to be installed in January 2023!
The first phase of our upper grades playground features a large Phyzics Full Moon climbing structure and four-part Champions Trek obstacle course. The obstacle course includes a balance beam, Chaos Climber, Sprawl Wall and Tapered Tower. Watch the video below to learn more about the equipment and see how much fun our kids will have on their new playground!

Champions Trek Obstacle Course
We've selected a two-tower, multi-story Extreme Generation play structure with twisty and straight slides, a bridge, activities at ground level and a variety of paths to explore. This Extreme Generation play structure will cost approximately $150,000 for the playground equipment, shipping, installation, and ground covering.
We already have a head start on fundraising for phase II from last year, and we hope to raise $70,000 during the 2023 Wharton Eagle Run by Boosterthon toward phase II.
