The Future Pick City Park

We started the planning for a new playground on August 1, 2016. The insurance company informed us that all but one piece of the current playground equipment needed to be removed. We established a plan, a budget and a contract with GameTime Play Systems, which was presented to the town counsel on November 7, 2016. We spent 2017 raising money and applying for grants to help with the purchase of the playground equipment.We took out a loan with Union State Bank of Hazen in November 2017, which allowed us to fulfill our contract with GameTime. We raised over $36 thousand dollars in 2017 and have since paid off the loan with Union State Bank.

We paid off that loan with Union State Bank within a couple of months. We accomplished our fundraising activities and have received grants for 2018 that has brought us close to our goal. 

We have been installing the new playground in the evenings and weekends this summer. The new playground is now located in the old baseball diamond. The picture below is our current state (October 10, 2018). We had to reschedule the installation of the engineered fiber, edging and weed barrier for spring due to weather conditions. We will communicate the new date and time a couple of weeks prior to the event. 

Thank you for your continued support!
