Phase 1 Playground Opening
Our Be the Change in Chandler Playground - Phase 1 had a soft opening a few weeks ago. The additional equipment was installed, inspections were completed, and the rubberized safety surfacing was poured. Phase 1 of the project is designed for children ages 2-5 years old. Our young citizens have been enjoying this dedicated space while we put the finishing touches on our final projects for this space.
Benches and additional signage should be installed next week, and other improvements in this area will include painted games like hopscotch, a marked walking path, and a tricycle/power wheels/small bike obstacle course.
We are so grateful to the donors, sponsors, volunteers, and greater community for your support in getting this project completed!
Our Grand Opening event for Phase 1 will be held on Friday, Sept. 22 at 10 a.m. at the Chandler Town Park. Please plan to join us to celebrate this community project!
