Those who have recently driven through the Village of Warwick might have noticed that the Village Department of Public Works (DPW) has begun the excavation of the playground equipment in Stanley-Deming Park in preparation for the exciting community build of the new ADA-accessible playground, which is scheduled to take place from Apr. 22 to Apr. 28.
Warwick Playground Dreams (WPD) is extremely grateful to Village of Warwick Mayor Michael Newhard, the Warwick Village Board, and the Village DPW for their wonderful enthusiasm and support throughout the fundraising and planning process for the playground.
As this playground is fully community-funded and community-built, the WPD is looking for the loan or donation of the tools that will be required to build the playground. Everything is needed – from saw horses and wheelbarrows, to an air compressor, to miter and circular saws, routers and impact drills, and much more. There is a long list!
Local volunteer team leaders and the Play By Design build consultants will be using a tried-and-true, carefully implemented system of tools usage throughout Build Week, to ensure that every tool in use is securely stored, checked in and checked out, and used properly. This will make sure that any items on loan are returned in the same condition that they are received.
Any individuals or businesses that would like to view the list of tools needed, can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sponsors who make in-kind donations will be gratefully acknowledged on the donor board at the entrance to the park at the appropriate sponsorship level. Individuals or organizations interested in helping to volunteer to build, or to send a team of volunteers, can sign up for their shift at warwickplaygrounddreams.com/sign-up-to-volunteer/.
