Wanted: volunteers to help transform a vacant plot into a Pooler community-built park.
The aim is to build a 17,000-square-foot park that is the largest and most unique playground in the area, custom-designed by children and built entirely through volunteer efforts.
The West Chatham YMCA in Pooler donated the land adjacent to Pooler Parkway between the YMCA and the new Pooler Recreation Park.
Volunteers will be needed to do most of the work – organization, fundraising, procurement and volunteer recruitment, even meal preparation and child care for the workers. Design, drafting, project management and construction supervision will be left to playground developers Leathers and Associates of New York.
The estimated $500,000 project will be funded in part by donations and fundraisers.
The proposed playground will be free and open to everyone, providing play opportunities for children of all abilities.
