Party in the Park final fundraiser for Project Playground

The last fundraiser for the effort to rebuild the wooden play structure at City Park takes place on Thursday, Sept. 7, 5-8 p.m. The Project Playground committee will be hosting “Party in the Park” at City Park from 5-8 p.m.

Terry Sheets & Rick Morgan, collectively, “Morgan Sheets,” will be playing live music on the playground stage — its final run as a local entertainment venue before it is demolished along with the rest of the play structure beginning Monday, Sept. 11.

Party in the Park will also feature food trucks, beer and wine, and children’s games.

Everyone is welcome to attend the party and gather one more time at the nearly 30-year-old play structure that has stood standing far past its expected lifespan. A group photo will be taken at 6:20 p.m. to capture the moment.

Fencing will be installed on Friday, Sept. 8, in preparation for demolition of the old structure on Monday. The plastic play structure now in place will be moved to Valley Oak Park later this month.

Build Week for the new play structure is planned the week of Oct. 10-15, and the Project Playground committee needs more help, and not just with construction. Additional jobs include serving food, checking in volunteers and managing tools. The committee estimates that it will need more than 200 volunteers each day.

The effort to rebuild the dilapidated wooden Robert Leathers play structure began more than a year ago with a handful of volunteers, known collectively as the Project Playground committee, who spent that time holding fundraisers and encouraging donations. The fundraising gap was finally closed with a major donation from the Yocha Dehe Tribe.

Anyone interested in volunteering for Build Week or wanting more information can contact a Project Playground committee member at the party in the Park, visit their website at, send an email to, or call Cheryl Moore, 530-902-1083.
