Fundraising for Phase 2 - Swings! - is now underway
The playground is broken into three phases, with the first being geared toward 2-5 year-olds; Phase 2 is a swingset that is rated for children ages 5-12; our third and final phase will be a bigger playground area for children ages 5-12.
We are so pleased to have reached our fundraising goal for Phase 1! Thanks to a boost from the Christian Science Irrevocable Trust last week, and a private donor who contacted us earlier this week, we were able to exceed our original expectations to be funded by next summer. We are planning a community build this spring (announcements to come), with the anticipation of having the playground open to the public before Memorial Day.
Phase 2 of the project includes a three-bay swing set that will provide two high-back accessible seats and four traditional belt swings; this area is rated for children ages 5-12 (and those of us adults who still like to swing). It will also have the rubberized, pour-in-place surfacing, which is both accessible and considered one of the most stable and consistent surfacing options available for playgrounds today.
We thank everyone who has helped to make this first phase a reality, and we look forward to continuing our efforts in providing a safe, accessible playground for all abilities and ages in Chandler!
