Residents young and old were out working this week to restore a beloved but aging playground as Wellington began its rebuild of the playground at Tiger Shark Cove Park.
The playground, located at the corner of Greenview Shores and Greenbriar boulevards, was built in 2000 through a community-led effort. Now, residents are stepping up once again to help renovate the park.
The rebuild began Wednesday, March 21 and will be completed Saturday, March 24.
Volunteers are working in shifts from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., guided by experts from Leathers & Associates.
Volunteers can sign up for any or all of three shifts each day. Children ages 10 to 14 are invited to volunteer with a parent or guardian, but there must be one adult supervisor for every two children under age 14. Students age 15 or older may volunteer if a parent signs a consent form.
Those wishing to volunteer can contact Community Projects Manager Kim Henghold at (561) 791-4137 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can’t volunteer but still want to get involved, pickets are being sold for $20 and can be inscribed.
