Our community is building the first all-abilities playground in the county, and I'm the Art Team Lead! I have awesome people on my team with mad art skillz, and it's been a pleasure to work with such creative souls! The funnest part of this project is that it is all community-built by volunteers in our area. As soon as I heard about it, I couldn't help but get giddy with excitement! How could I not do this?!
This is what our playground is going to include:
There's a pirate ship, train, mountain castle, rocket ship and more! Our job as the art Team is to take the features and bring them to life through our artwork, and I'm looking forward to seeing the end result.
There are teams for PR, materials management, fundraising, child care, food, children involvement, and building, among others. If you want to be involved and live in Utah Valley, you can find the volunteer form here.
I'm totally going to be playing on this playground along with my kiddos because it's going to be so awesome! Also, we can say we built it, and there's no better feeling than making a big difference for someone in your own backyard!
