This is it folks: the final phase of our project started with this blog back in 2008. It all comes together on JULY 16th when we install our new play structure (see post below) at the park. We need all you handy moms and dads out there to come help. All levels of expertise (or lack of it!) will be put to good use! If you are out of town or otherwise occupied that day and would still like to help make a donation here and put Cold Spring Tots Park as the fund name. Or email to donate snacks/drinks for the volunteers. Hope to see you on the 16th. Local kids will thank you for years to come!

New Playscape coming soon to the Tots Park!

Goodbye Scary Bridge! Hello new, safe, ADA compliant playscape... Thanks to Garrison resident Rajay Bagaria, a new playscape may soon be installed at the Tots Park. Rajay secured us a significant discount on the new structure. Miracle Recreation custom designed the new playscape to mimic what we currently have while eliminating the safety hazards of the bridge and stairs. The Friends of the Tots Park has almost enough funds to make it happen but we need close to $2000 to reach our goal. Will you help secure the future of the Tots Park?
