Legacy Park Elementary School is a unique 21st century learning environment physically connected to a City-owned recreation and cultural facility. Serving as a replacement for 3 ageing schools, the individual identities and culture of each student body were captured and integrated into elements of the new school.
The front entrance of LPES connects to The Credit Union Spark Cultural and Recreation Centre. The facility includes an indoor turf field, a track surface that goes around the indoor field, multipurpose rooms, an outdoor ice surface, a mini-gym, and change rooms.
LPES is designed for up to 650 students, all classrooms flow into a large common space complete with a performance stage, media center and amphitheater seating for student assemblies, performances and community meetings. The school and daycare centre is divided into distinct age-specific zones called learning communities; each of which contain a mix of flexible classrooms, break-out rooms, wet and messy areas, teacher collaboration spaces and student common spaces that serve as community hubs for each age grouping.
