As many of you know, a small, but dedicated group of volunteers have been working hard to build a new playground on 29th St SW, adjacent to the Killarney Aquatic Centre.
We are proud to say that the Killarney-Glengarry Community Association has been one of the top sponsors so far with a total donation of $20,000. We know that communities are built around great public spaces - places to gather, to meet and to support all abilities. That's why we're so proud that this playground will be accessible to children with special needs -adding to the great facilities at the Killarney Aquatic Centre.
Now, with over 50% of funds now raised, the playground is a go for summer 2015 build! So what happens next? Here's how you can give your opinion and get involved.
We now have a draft design that we would love to get your feedback on - as per the above image. Simply comment on this post or email us with your feedback.
VOTE: We also want to get input on several extra pieces of equipment where we need to make some choices. There are several ways to vote on these:
- Come along to our Easter Egg Hunt on April 5, where the playground committee will have a booth and be available to answer your questions
- Check out the survey and vote here until May 31, 2015
- Comment or post on the playground Facebook page
VOLUNTEER: If you can help with coordinating fundraising or if you're keen to help build the actual playground, please email Chelsea Ince - she would love to hear from you!
DONATE BOTTLES: The playground committee are running a bottle drive in association with our Annual spring clean-up event. So come along and donate your empty cans and bottles to this great cause on May 3.
Here's to making our community a better place to live, work and to play!
