A true community collaboration resulted in the successful installation of a brand new town green playground in October 2014. The efforts began in August 2013 with a design contest for the playground structure opened up to the community. November marked the kickoff for the fundraising for the project.
Through online donations, fundraisers at local eateries, and donations of prizes from local stores the community surpassed the $11,000 goal and raised $12,765 in just 1 month! In addition to these funds, Bristol was awarded a $15,000 grant from Kaboom. Through additional fundraising events around Bristol the project was able to be completed.
The project broke ground in August of 2014 and with countless volunteer hours by the end of October it was ready for play! This inclusive natural playground is extremely unique and one of the few in the state with ADA compliance.
