ROSEBURG, Ore. -- With more students getting exercise during recess, Green Elementary School in Roseburg is in line for some upgrades.
The school was chosen for the Roseburg Area Chamber of Commerce Community Benefit Project.
The project includes painting a track on the playground and replacing gravel with wood chips for safety.
"Green does not have a safe park option for our kids," said Green Elementary Principal Amy Rodriguez, "and in the summertime, we have a lot of kids that hang out here on the green campus."
The playground will also have obstacle course equipment and an area for outdoor games.
The project is set to be finished by May of this year.
