We are nearing the final construction stage of our beautiful playground but as the grass seeds were sown last week,it is imperative that NO ONE enters the site for the next 3-4 weeks as walking on it will completely ruin all of the grass! We now urge all parents to warn their kids to please stay away until the attached signs are taken down off the gates and fencing! We have all waited such a long time for this facility so another month won't kill any of us but it will kill the grass!
