The Process

How Brooklyn’s Playground
Will Happen

A playground for all of our community’s children will truly involve our entire community. Our children. Civic, service, youth and church groups. Individual volunteers. Our public school system. Our city governments. It is a project that will touch the lives of everyone in the Pocatello/Chubbuck community, and everyone will have an opportunity to participate.

Design Day – Thursday, February 10, 2011

Where: Wilcox Elementary School, 427 Lark Lane
When: 6:30 p.m.

Design Day is where Brooklyn’s Playground takes shape. A professional playground architect works with children from the area, listening to them as they tell him what they want to see in a playground. From interaction with these “playground designer” children, the playground architect will produce a design for Brooklyn’s Playground that is a unique reflection of the “perfect playground” as the children in our area see it! Brooklyn’s Playground will be like no other playground in the country.

The public is invited to Design Day. If you would like to find out more about Brooklyn’s Playground, you are welcome to attend and find out more about this exciting project.

Organization Phase – Ongoing

This is the “nuts and bolts” of making a project like Brooklyn’s Playground happen – fundraising and securing in-kind donations, generating public awareness of the project, and signing up volunteers to help make Brooklyn’s Playground a reality.

If you’d like to volunteer to help make Brooklyn’s Playground a success – Contact Us.

Brooklyn’s Playground depends upon the generosity of area donors, both of cash and in-kind donations of materials or skilled labor. You can make a donation today by visiting our Contribute Page: Click Here.

Build Week – September, 2011

Professional consultants will work on-site with an enthusiastic army of volunteers. In the space of just a few days, our community will transform an empty space at OK Ward Park into Brooklyn’s Playground – community-designed and community-built, a place for ALL of our children to play for many years to come!
