After nearly 10 years of fundraising, we are so excited to have a completed design for a brand new playground at St. Luke’s Day School, with plans progressing to begin construction over the summer break in 2018!


This beautiful new design is the result of a year’s worth of collaboration with a wonderful team of landscape architects. They are Cheryl Corson, of Cheryl Corson Design, LLC, and Kathryn Pacious, a local Alexandria landscape architect who also happens to be a SLDS parent.

The new playground will address issues of drainage that have kept our active children inside longer than necessary during rainy spells, as well as improve the layout and access, update equipment, and provide new spaces for shaded play and increased outdoor fun and learning.

Funding for this project falls way outside of the budget for the Day School, and we are fortunate to have St. Luke’s Church contributing 50% of the cost.  Nevertheless, we rely on generous community support to fully fund this exciting improvement to SLDS.

Thank you, our SLDS families and community, for the financial support that has brought us to this point!
