One Year ago  (April 2013)  An Idea!

We are pleased to announce Phase 1 of the project,

“State of the Art”

Playground Equipment

will be installed in  June 2014.

The goal of the Visionary Group has been to

Revive  the Existing School Grounds into a

“Park Like Setting”

known as  “WASHINGTON SQUARE “ Central Park  

This being a major project, the consensus of Visionary Group was that it should be considered as a Two Phase Project...  

                  •  Phase 1  New Playground Equipment  (2014)

                    •  Phase  2  Shelter House  (2015)

PHASE ONE TIME LINE:   April 1, 2014 -  June 2014

          •  “Spring to the Finish”  --Fund Raising Campaign

                    OUR GOAL IS NEAR BUT HAS NOT BEEN MET!

        •  Equipment Site  Location & Design   Finalized           

        •  Merry-go-Round -Taken down/refurbished/relocated

        •  Swings & Slide dismantled & disposed 

        •  Site Preparation

        •  Installation of Equipment -Landscape Structures


This Playground Equipment will offer hours of enjoyment to the children of the community as well as attracting those who pass through to stop and stay for a bit and enjoy our community.

Please  consider a donation for this Community Project

It is an investment in our future!

Pancakes are all you care to eat!

There will be a time period,  of a few weeks,  that the current playground will be void of the slide, swings and merry-go-round. This will be necessary to prepare the site for the new equipment. 

   The folks doing the prep work are donating their time so we must respect their time frame. We appreciate their willingness to support this project in this way......
