Friday, October 30, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

After a year of being out of use because of unsafe equipment, the playground at Cook Elementary School is open once again. City Council Member Greg Casar, Austin Independent School District Superintendent Paul Cruz, AISD District 3 Trustee Ann Teich, Parks and Recreation Department Director Sara Hensley and Austin Parks Foundation Executive Director Colin Wallis will join Cook Elementary School students in celebrating the new park (and new equipment) today, Oct. 30, at 2 p.m. The reopening is a result of a collaboration among AISD, the Austin Parks Foundation and the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.
