Herkimer Elementary students are having an “American Ninja Warrior” experience on the new playground equipment that was recently unveiled at the school.
Work began earlier in 2020 to renovate the playground, and the playground was under construction during the summer. But in November, HES students finally got to run, climb, swing and play on the new “American Ninja Warrior” play pieces, which are designed for children ages 5 and older.
The new playground equipment includes climbing structures and a long zip line, which teachers said is one of the most popular new features.
The playground is open to the community during times when school is not in session, so that it can be enjoyed by everyone.
