In memory of our good friend and Board of Trustees member, Mr. William Simpson, who was an avid train enthusiast, the new YARCS playground will be named "Simpson Station," and the railroad theme will be incorporated throughout the playground design. The York Academy sits along an active rail line that connects York to the wider world. The centerpiece of the playground will include LSC-designed "Simpson Station" - a train platform-inspired structure.
