UPDATE — EVENT POSTPONED — NEW DATE TO COME. The designs that Philadelphia Parks and Recreation received from their vendor did not meet specifications — they did not fit the layout of the space and ignored several requests. As a result we are postponing the meeting until appropriate designs are ready to be presented to the community. Our apologies for this inconvenience and we will let you know when a new date is planned.
As part of the redesign of Gold Star Park, the City will present three options for the new playground equipment and their price tags, for the community to ask questions, discuss and vote. This is our opportunity to chose our playground equipment and determine our fundraising obligations based on our choices.
Please bear in mind that the community discussed swings at the initial community meeting. Due to the large amount of space and money needed to meet safety requirements, we decided to select other equipment for the park and the design reflects that. Swings will not be presented.
