The Willowgrove Playground Initiative is raising money to expand on the current playground that is located in Wallace Park. This initiative is composed of parents and staff of Willowgrove School who are volunteering their time in an effort to raise funds to be used to improve and expand on the current playground in Wallace Park.

This playground is used by all Willowgrove students before and after school, as well as K-2 children (which is 230 students) each day at recess. The current play structure is also used by all residents of Willowgrove and surrounding neighbourhoods who visit Wallace Park all year long. The population of Willowgrove School and University Heights is growing and the current playground is not large enough to meet the needs of the increasing number of children!

We also have a Functional Life Skills class at Willowgrove School and the playground as it is currently set up is not accessible for the students of that program and other children at Willowgrove School and in the community with various special needs.

In addition to other avenues for funding, such as looking for sponsorships and grants, we are asking parents of children at Willowgrove School and anyone with family that uses the playground in Wallace Park to contribute whatever they feel comfortable so that we can reach our total fundraising goal of $150,000 as quickly as possible!
