Field of Dreams Project Update

Published: April 16, 2018

Our work on the Field of Dreams has begun! Just when we were slated to begin work in October 2017, our focus dramatically shifted to the fire response. Now that we’ve moved into the recovery phase, we have also spent the last month finalizing our plans, contractors and initial timeline for the project!

  • Earlier this month, we began to pull out some of the fencing in our play yard area and remove the larger shade structures and equipment in our play yards to make space for our contractors to begin work.
  • Then we piled the pea gravel for easy removal that currently carpets the majority of the play yards.
  • The gravel was removed on April 9th, clearing the way for re-building to begin.
  • Our local utility companies have returned to mark up our work area so we can work safely.
  • Next steps: rebuilding! The re-build phase in both the play yards and the new Meet & Greet area start later this month with new fencing, concrete curbing and landscaping. In May, we’ll install the synthetic turf in our longest play yard for better year-round access!

Stay tuned for more updates and photos of our progress!
