The kids who helped design a new playground planned for Roseland Elementary School in Santa Rosa on Tuesday weren't thinking only of swings and slides.
They also suggested a climbing wall, zip line, secret tunnel and VIP room.
“We'll try to incorporate as many of the kids' ideas as possible,” said Hazel Whiteoak of Sonoma County Community Action Partnership, a partner in the project.
Parents and professional playground planners also will have input.
The community group has joined forces with KaBoom, a national nonprofit organization that restores old playgrounds and builds new ones. Pacific Gas & Electric Co. is providing a grant for the project.
It will replace a worn-out playground on the elementary school campus, Whiteoak said.
KaBoom will supervise a volunteer effort to build the playground on Dec. 3.
