We're Building a Playground, and Building Our Community!

The Mansfield Community Playground is a grassroots, community-wide effort to create a new, highly-accessible playground for families in the greater Mansfield area.  Nearly 800 community volunteers--parents, children, business owners, artists, and others--will be involved in this project, contributing to design and planning efforts and supplying the labor to build the playground over a 5-day period once the money is raised. 

A Unique Design

The playground has been custom-designed to reflect our community.  Hundreds of Mansfield children submitted their ideas and drawings for the playground, and many of their wishes have been incorporated into the design.  The playground will have many wheelchair-accessible components.  The design includes play areas appropriate for children from age 2 through 10, making it ideal for families with children of varying ages.

Building Our Community

The playground will provide a much-needed, free gathering space for families to meet and connect.  In addition, new friends will be made through the community-build process.  The community is coming together to plan, fundraise, and build this playground!
