Can you believe it’s been nearly 12 years since we unveiled the FRIENDS PLAYGROUND? Together with our generous donors, we have provided the children at Signal Centers with a state-of-the-art therapeutic outdoor play environment. Signal Centers playground is universally accessible and is certified as a NatureGrounds;® designed to put nature back into children’s lives. The fully accessible structure coupled with the living landscape offers the children the experience to interact with nature, stimulate the mind, strengthen the body and help to develop a sense of wonder and Imagination.
The average life of a poured-in-place rubber ground surface is 10 - 12 years. To maintain maximum safety and up-keep, this year’s ABC Goal is to raise $175,000 for playground improvements. We will replace the poured-in-place surface for the main playground, expand the size of the baby Music & Art playground, add three sail-shade structures, replace the swings and install several landscape items. These improvements will ensure the children have a safe and creative outdoor space to play, learn and grow into the future. ♥
