Creating an innovative multi-use outdoor space will enhance Crossroads Students for generations to come.

A significant event occurred in 2017 that changed the history of our school: We moved to an expansive new building in Marlborough, MA! After months of renovations, our students and staff now enjoy spacious, sunlit spaces to work on their educational, social, occupational, behavioral, and other goals.

This year we have shifted our attention to what every school and every student also needs: an outdoor play space. The extra acreage surrounding the building (a “blank canvas”) will allow us to plan and build a sprawling outdoor recreation space to include a playground, field, and a multi-use court. As it turns out, developing such an area from scratch is expensive. Drafting plans, preparing the site, hiring contractors, and purchasing and installing adaptive equipment will cost $250,000.
