The new play structure at Kalmiopsis Elementary School opened Friday afternoon to the cheers of hundreds of students, culminating years of effort by the local Parent Teacher Association and the hard work of dozens of volunteers.

The total cost of the project, including installation supplies, was about $41,000. The structure weighs 12,025 pounds; is 22 feet long by 60 feet, 9 inches wide, by 18 feet, 9 inches high; and includes a variety of slides, climbers and a 10-foot-high tube slide.
