Play! Playground 2021 Coming to You This Summer


This summer, the renovations will continue with installation of new playground units in the South Blvd playground area, replacing Poe’s 23-year old structures with slides, climbers, balance beams and more!  Funded by the Poe 90th Celebration Campaign and the Spark Park School Program, with in-kind demolition and excavation services from HISD, Poe's Phase 2 playground design allows 123 children to engage with over 30 play activities including sliding, balancing, climbing and spinning events.

 Phase 2 Playground, Center Field View




Phase 2 installation will be complete with Poe's Musical Garden, gifted by the Hsieh Family and the Poe PTO Community!




Playground will be open for use for the Fall 2021 semester!
