Terrace Elementary School SPARK Park re-SPARK


On a sunny Sunday afternoon in November, Terrace Elementary community members celebrated the re-SPARK of their school's SPARK Park. The SPARK School Park Program works with schools and neighborhoods to develop community parks on public school grounds. 

Community members, students, teachers, and parents participated in the design process to ensure that the park represents community members' ideas and the needs of those who live in the surrounding area. The original SPARK Park dedication at Terrace was in 2003. The 2021 re-SPARK includes a new outdoor learning space, picnic tables, and custom metal artwork. Terrace's re-SPARK is part of SPARK Week 2021. Along with honoring community members who supported the work and cutting the celebratory red ribbon, attendees of the event also received a 2022 SPARK Art Calendar featuring Terrace as the showcase school for May.
