About Garfield Elementary School: features an outdated playground. The only play equipment in the yard is a single, antiquated swing that is designed for use by children with limiting physical disabilities.
In addition to schoolchildren, the playground is a regular recreational destination for grandparents and parents in the community. They visit the grounds for park district sporting events and play with their young family members. Unfortunately, Henry Puffer’s playground no longer aligns with many of the current safety guidelines.
