Something amazing has been happening in Warwick over the past two years. What started as an idea between a few parents and local residents turned into one of the largest and most well-executed park building projects we’ve ever seen. The group of volunteers leading what is called “Warwick Playground Dreams” has raised over $300,000 toward building a fully handicap accessible playground in the Village of Warwick for all residents to use. The playground will be located in Stanley-Deming Park.
Although this monumental fundraising milestone has been achieved, there is still much work to be done. The plan calls for teams of volunteers to help with the building of the park. The construction phase is taking place during “build week” which is Mon., Apr. 22 to Sun., Apr. 28 and they are looking for volunteers to assist! If you would like to volunteer on this wonderful project, please visit their website at warwickplaygrounddreams.com and sign as a volunteer.
Please Walk Your Dog Responsibly!
As the weather turns for the better, more people will be out strolling the streets with their furry family members. When out walking your dogs, please be reminded of the need to curb your dog IMMEDIATELY when needed. It is your responsibility, as a human and pet owner, to ensure you have the proper bags or method of disposal BEFORE you leave your door. If you happen to forget, don’t worry, our friendly police officers will be there to remind you – most likely issuing you a “piece of paper” that may not be used to clean up after your dog!
