Play set is finally installed

The play set is finally installed. The concrete is still drying and we will have to wait for the weather to improve the get the landscaping done. But it is there – look at the photos or go out and take a look at it.

The Play Set has been ordered.

Finally the play set project has been commissioned and the new play set is currently on order. We expect the final installation of the play set to be performed during February. It has been a long process but we believe that have performed our due diligence and made the right choice.


The play set is being purchased through Recreation Unlimited, which is will also be in charge of the installation. Finally we have contracted Chad Basset (another WHPOA member) to perform the landscaping work around the play set. The landscaping will also includes special mulch around the play set.

Part of the money used to purchase and install the play set is a donation by the Kendal family. We plan to honor their donation once the play set is installed by some type of commemorative inscription. Some ideas of how to do this have emerged and more about this will come in the future. Obviously if you have any ideas please let us know.
