It’s going right here next to the restrooms and Fitness Court.

We Know Play Matters

In these trying times, access to play spaces is more important than ever. You have likely experienced the need for play spaces (kid and adult) are significant to the health and wellness of our community. 

Design days and Build days usually meet in person, but as a result of current pandemic we have had to change a few things.  The event is now virtual, and may evolve into a series of online activities and programming.

We hope to Build in the Fall and while we can’t play together as much or congregate in large crowds, we can still meet ONLINE. So, in the meantime we can draw and get creative VIRTUALLY. 

Bookmark this page and look to our social media for information as Build Day gets closer or if you want to help and volunteer to plan Build Day.

PS - it happens in 6 hours!
