New Park Playground!!

Our playground community build was a huge success!!  Hundreds of volunteer hours have been logged by dedicated community members over the last week.  Taylor, our site supervisor, said this was the best playground community build he’s done!!  We cannot thank our volunteers enough.  Each and every one played a crucial part in making this such a huge success.

Tayler and Aiden from P & L Lawn & Landscaping were fabulous in augering the 81 footings and leading the community build and directing our volunteers.

Thank you to Home Depot in Lisbon for donating (3) pallets of Quikrete.

Thank you to Voc’s Westside Pizza for the delicious grinders both Saturday and Sunday for our volunteers.  They were a huge hit with everyone.  We received many, many compliments.  

Our Playground Community Build was scheduled from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm on both Saturday and Sunday.  There was a dedicated group of 6 that stuck it out until 6:00 pm on Sunday when the last of the 250 yards of woodchips were dumped by the payloader.  We needed to add 50 more yards of woodchips and this was done on Thursday and more volunteers came out on Thursday night too.  So, in total, 300 yards of woodchips were spread by volunteers!!

Over 85% of this playground project was paid for by a grant.  Also, by doing a Community Build, we saved over $30,000!!

Volunteers’ kids were treated to a special playground grand opening on September 18, 2020!!  

So here’s the BIG announcement everyone has been waiting for…we are happy to announce the playground will open to the public starting tomorrow, Saturday, September 19, 2020 at 9:00 am!!
