More Info

Our priority for re-building the Toddler Park and the School-Aged (5-12) Playgrounds at Hammer Field is to create an accessible community space that invites all children to spend time outdoors, enjoy physical activity, and interact with their peers. This means having wheel-chair access to the play equipment, and providing a range of activities appropriate for children who may have sensory issues, developmental delays, or visual impairments. 

The School-Aged Playground was built in 1990 and it was removed in May of 2014 due to issues beyond repair. The Toddler Park was also built in 1990, but has components in place that are 50 years old. This play-space is badly in need of updating.  

The Branford Community House Playground Improvement Project/Hammer Field Playground Committee has already received $73,000 approved by the Town of Branford, $20,000 from the Branford Parks and Recreation Fund, $3,800 from the John B. Sliney PTA and community donors, $1,000 from the Branford Coalition to Prevent Underage Drinking. The expected total cost to renovate both the Toddler Park and School-Aged Playground is $150,000.

Thank you!
