A Better Place to Play

As a continuation of our partnership with the City of Edwardsville Parks and Recreation Department, District 7 is pleased to share information on an exciting new city initiative – “A Better Place to Play.”

The campaign, “A Better Place to Play,” will fund three projects in Edwardsville: a Spray & Play Park - which feature a splash pad and dry playground, fitness track, shade structures and pavilions, an Ice Rink/Teen Center which features a 43,000 sq. ft. indoor facility for hockey, figure skating, and recreational skate use, and a multi-use Sports Park which meets the growing need for field space for athletes of all ages.

We believe that this campaign is a great initiative that not only improves recreational facilities, but also provides additional opportunities for all District 7 students and community residents. “A Better Place to Play” is the future of our Edwardsville community! [More Info]
