Come help build the new Maple Leaf playground on April 6th, 7th

Posted by Mike on March 14th, 2013

The playground this morning. The zip line runs between the two red arches.


In a couple of weeks it will be time to haul out the work gloves and come help build parts of the new Maple Leaf playground.

Or call it by its new name: the Maple Leaf Family Terrace. Complete with a  zip line!

The city is currently working on various pieces of play equipment at the terrace, but neighbors will have the opportunity to help construct two structures (seen at right) and put plants in the ground.

No tools are required, and local businesses will be providing lunch, but bring a beverage.

The dates are Saturday, April 6th, with both morning and afternoon signups, and Sunday April 7th if work remains to be done.

For more information visit the  Maple Leaf Community Council’s “build” page. And the online signup to volunteer is here.

The last time we looked the new Maple Leaf Reservoir Park – and Family Terrace – was to open this fall. (Update: Family Terrace to open for summer! See Donna’s comment, below. Donna chairs the community council committee on the park.)

    The Family Terrace will be opened this spring (yay! in time for summertime) and the upper areas will be late summer/early fall.

    Editor: Thanks, Donna. (What we on 12th Avenue Northeast want to know is when they will open the north entrance to the park!)

    I’m guessing this will open when the upper park opens – the ubiquitous late summer/early fall. Will let you know when I have more specific dates.
