Forden Park has a new playground for community youth to enjoy. The new playground at Forden Park is open and a dedication celebration will be held on August 19th at 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Please note the date has been changed from the original announcement of August 12th. The Grand Opening is sponsored by the “Fun”ds for Forden Committee. A Grand Opening Ceremony will take place at 11:00 a.m., followed by games, free hot dog lunch, and free candy medals for the first 100 kids.

The project is the result of a partnership between the City and an extensive community fundraising effort. The fundraising campaign was conducted by “Fun”ds for Forden. The City used development impact fee funds to pay for construction of the walkway and play surface. The “Fun”ds for Forden moneys were used to purchase, install and donate the play equipment. Benches and picnic tables will also be added using a combination of funding raised by “Fun”ds for Forden and grant funds received by the City.
