Community built playgrounds are becoming increasingly popular. They can save money and offer the opportunity to bring a community closer together. With proper preparation and enough dedicated volunteers, a community build project can be especially rewarding during the event and in the future, when participants revisit the playground with their children and grandchildren. Helping to build a playground can foster an increased sense of ownership and caring by community members, which can help keep a playground well-maintained for years to come.
Struthers Recreation will help guide you through the process providing a list of tools and supplies needed for your community build. On the day of installation, we also provide an installation supervisor to coordinate your volunteers and answer any questions you may have.
