You can still donate toward the play park! You can do so by visiting RebeccaSchofieldPark.com!

With construction set to kick off June 4th until the 10th, there is a call for volunteers to help build the park — It’s not just skilled labourers that they’re in need of.

Project Manager Sean Rollo says “…We’re looking for volunteers of all skill levels. Even if you’ve never touched a power tool before, there’s a job for you on the site & we need you. The park itself is not going to get built without the volunteers of our community, so please come on out & volunteer.

The Rebecca Schofield All World Super Play Park is more than just an elementary school playground — A huge component of the new design is inclusivity and accessibility. We consulted many professional associations to seek their guidance and expertise, including a number of societies that deal primarily with accessibility issues.

The new design includes a wheelchair-accessible outdoor classroom, wheelchair-accessible safety surfaces/ramps/roundabouts, as well ability swings, sensory play, sign language & braille embedded into the park, and so much more.

You can register as a volunteer during park construction at RebeccaSchofieldPark.com/volunteer!
