THE TIME IS NOW: Are ye ready to set sail with us as we launch a new playground?
From the initial desire to “renovate” our beloved playground by adding a centerpiece play station to honor John Brannan with his memorial funds we have since endeavored to create the HPPC FAMILY LEGACY PLAYGROUND DEDICATED TO JOHN B. BRANNAN Youth Leader, Teacher, Elder, Treasurer.
Calls went out to 5 playground companies. After initial contact, 3 companies actually came out to view the current site and make proposals.The company who clinched the final selection was Kompan, with the standout option of the Pirate Ship. Kompan designed Water Works Park next to Ulele, where you can see the adorable Ocean SeeSaw and the Spinner Pole. Their recommended design made sure the Pirate Ship had good visibility from the Swann Avenue corridor, and that play stations were grouped age-appropriately and with safe “use zones”.
The new playground will be a fresh, fun, and vital way to provide a welcome haven for young children in families who join us as well as a community resource. It will be very visible from the Swann Avenue drive-by corridor, and a gift and outreach to the families in our community.
Many of you have underwritten special items on the playground and we are so greatful for your contributions! There are still opportunities to participate by sponsoring play stations that are waiting to be adopted. Gifts of all sizes are welcome to go toward the Playground Fund as well.
