The Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board engaged Rutherford Contracting to complete a full kinder garden playground redevelopment at St. Bernard’s Catholic Elementary School in Orillia. In order to facilitate the redevelopment, some demolition was needed. This included the removal of existing asphalt surfaces and granular base.
A new tapered asphalt perimeter patch was tied into existing to create the two Engineered Wood Fiber (EWF) pits. The other excavated areas on site were backfilled with triple mix for the new trees, shrubs and flower beds and gravel for under the new artificial turf. The exterior playground equipment, which was built all out of Eastern white cedar, included an A-frame playhouse, exterior chalkboards, stepping logs, accessible and raised planters, a cedar deck, benches and sandbox logs.
