We spent the last few weeks renovating the playground. We added more attractions - a larger deck for the sandbox with a white picket fence, a cargo rope, a wooden incline with rope, a snake balance beam, a set of tires to climb (painted like a giant butterfly), a hop-scotch board, and a small picnic table. In addition we also painted the entire playground in a garden theme.
The neighbors are really helping with the playground and garden area. We had a lot of volunteer labor to help with the renovations. There are also people willing to help everyday watering and weeding the garden and watching out for the playground. It is great to see the growth of community spirit and pride that is occurring in our little neighborhood.
