Playground Build Starts Tomorrow

Friends of Lucas Park would like to extend a huge thank you to all of our volunteers, donors and supporters.  You have all contributed greatly to this renovation and beautification project. Tomorrow, Friday Sept. 7th, we will begin our construction prep work with the delivery of all materials needed for Saturday's build day.  If you are not signed up to assist in the build please stop by and take part in the children's activities that will be going on from 8am-4pm in the west end of the park.  Click here for details.  We also hope that you are able to join us for our first official play date on Tuesday Sept. 11th from 5:30pm-7:30pm.  We will have weekly play dates to follow every Tuesday evening 5:30pm-7:30pm and Thursday mornings from 10am-12pm.

As most of you know the playground build is just the beginning for Lucas Park.  Work on the new irrigation system, fountain repair and plantings will soon follow. Fundraising for these efforts is also underway. The amount that we need to raise in the next month to fully fund these phase 2 improvements is $30,000. We are off to a great start as Emerson has issued a letter offering to match $15,000 in donations, from Downtown stakeholders, dollar for dollar.  We are extremely grateful for this and hope that Downtown pitches in and helps us take full advantage of this grant.

We are also gearing up for our first perennial planting and Halloween party play date.

We hope to see you all this weekend.  This is a great opportunity to meet those who are making a difference in our neighborhood.
