This past weekend, Allendale Elementary in East Oakland revealed a newly-constructed playground, garden, and mural to the community. Allendale is the first of six Oakland public schools that will receive a new playground, thanks to Eat. Learn. Play., the foundation that Stephen and Ayesha Curry co-founded.
The other schools that will receive a new playground in Oakland are:
Lockwood STEAM Academy
Esperanza Elementary and Korematsu Discovery Academy (on the Stonehurst campus)
Acorn Woodland Elementary and Encompass Academy (on the 81st Avenue campus)
The sixth site is still TBD.
Eat. Learn. Play. partnered with KABOOM!, Oakland Unified School District, The Bhusri Family, and others to remodel Allendale’s playground.
