    It's a good start! I have benches, trash cans, more see saws and more trees. Also, it appears as though swing sets and tether ball will be available soon.

    There's a thread on here somewhere with pictures of what other people did with their schools. Maybe search for that and try and get a few other ideas if you are not happy with what you currently have.

    Maybe have just the back wall brick and try chain link for the other sides? It would change the look a bit and maybe give you some new ideas?

    Like the OP I was not happy will my school yard - it was the mass of brick for me - just too much of it. I removed each other one and replaced them with a black gate (to look like railings) - it looks really effective. I have the seesaw, couple of trees, Willy's shack incorporated. Just waiting for the swings and tether ball to make it complete.

    Perhaps a level 2 would be kind enough to re-post to see image.

    Thank you

    Throw some more trees, bushes, shrubs, and hedges in there. Take the tire swing out of the corner. Add some graffiti to spice up the walls.

    I looked there first, it hasn't really taken off there wasn't much. Think of this of more of a help others with their town kind of thread.

    I just completely redesigned my school to make way for the tether ball and swing sets.

    Before:
    3D96996C-1B39-4809-A64E-7F48753666BC-8021-000003FD8E66594F_zpsf840bf71.jpg

    After:
    77DB97A7-4BC7-4E91-B9B1-3BA4B4F4C3C9-8078-000003FF30517770_zpsaaa4c484.jpg

    I preferred how I had it before a lot more, but I think once the tether ball and swing set are in I'll be happier with it. I really don't like the brick walls, but I don't think pure hedge walls would look nearly as good. I played with chain link but they don't set up well enough and cut out too much space. If I used them there would be no room for the swing set.

    It's a school. It shouldn't look nice. I made mine look a bit like a prison.
