In 2017 the Town of Mammoth Lakes Parks and Recreation Department were awarded a Healthy Play Funding grant and recieved $100,000 of matching funds from PlayCore and GameTime to install a new inclusive playground at Mammoth Creek Park. The playground will be the first truly inclusive playground incorporating research-based, best practices in Eastern California and will also serve as a National Demonstration Site (NDS).
Because this is a matching grant, your support is greatly needed. Your tax-deductible donation will be used to secure the unique elements that will ensure this playground can be enjoyed by users of all abilities. With your charitable gift, you will be helping to provide physical, social, emotional, sensory, cognitive and communicative play to the Town of Mammoth Lakes. Please click the button below and make your donation today!
The inclusive playground is scheduled to be installed this summer and the Town is looking for volunteers. Based on the current schedule for the site work and removal of the existing playground, the ‘supervised’ community build is scheduled from June 11 – 22, 2018.
If you can volunteer 2-4 hours of your time, please register online. For each shift worked, every volunteer receives a custom T-shirt, lunch and a chance to win great raffle prizes such as a 32” LED TV, 3-day 2018 Bluesapalooza passes, Whitmore Pool passes, restaurant/retail certificates, and more!
