Crown Hill Center Playground Update

We’ve just received this from Lynn Wirta about the Crown Hill Center Playground version 2.0. You can view the plans presented at the April 28th meeting here. This is a great opportunity to meet neighbors and community members interested in helping out with this community resource.

The Committee is looking for large landscape rocks-2 yard size to expand the existing rockery on the playground.  If you have any or know of someone who is getting rid of large rocks, please let Johnny know at  We are also looking for large driftwood to create a beach environment in the sand area.

Tentative date for the playscape install is the weekend of July 10 and 11.  We’ll need at least 25 volunteers that weekend so please mark your calendar for helping out.  The $17,000 grant we received from the City is a matching system.  All volunteer hours will contribute to making the $17K match. Lunch and childcare will be provided.

The new space is getting closer and closer to reality!  We are delighted to have Tom Grover, President of Kompan Play Equipment living in our neighborhood.  He plans to attend our next meeting on June 10th to lend his expertize along with his local consultant and child development specialist.
