Children Design the New Playground Coming to North Light!


On Tuesday afternoon, 40 children from the North Light community put crayons to paper and drew their dream playground! Elements from the kids’ drawings will be incorporated into the final design of the playground that will be built on Tuesday, September 30th at the North Light Community Center. Ultimately, with help from GlaxoSmithKline and organizers from national non-profit KaBOOM!, the goal is for the kids’ dream playground to become a reality.

We’re calling on community members to provide input and sweat equity to create a space the neighborhood can be proud of! Please help make this project a reality by getting your hands dirty with the site preparation or the build itself. We need you to join us for one, a few, or all of the following dates/times:

Saturday, September 27, 8:00am-5:00pm and/or Monday, September 29, TBA – Site Preparation – pitch in to remove the old playground and get the site ready for the new one.

Tuesday, September 30, 8:00am-3:00pm – Playground Build Day (All hands on deck!)

All meetings and events will take place at North Light, 175 Green Lane. Please RSVP to Irene Madrak at 215-483-4800 or for any of the dates/times you can help. Please also let us know if your business is interested in providing food for volunteers or participating in Build Day.
