The schoolyard at Arthur R Ashe Elementary School opened in fall 2019. The schoolyard features a running track; turf field; play equipment for older and younger students; two half basketball courts; an outdoor classroom; edible, rain and native gardens; and outdoor seating.

For former Ashe Assistant Principal Dr. Jackson, the schoolyard transformation represents more than just a new place to kids to be active. “It’s a good thing for the school and for the neighborhood,” he says. “There can be a lot of doom and gloom, and this schoolyard can be a beacon of light.”
