For most of the time since the beginning of the Covid scamdemic our small non-profit committee has been working on developing a new park in our community. We began in June, 2020. A 5 acre (on two levels) wooded parcel of land that hadn't been used in several years was donated to our committee. We named it The Woodlands and began by clearing brush and an old barn off the land and then started adding equipment. Our goal was to make it a fun place for adults as well as children since there are so few places adults can have fun.
We are almost through with adding equipment. (Hopefully, we can add a couple more basket swings to the lower level since they are so popular). We still have a lot to do as far as maintenance and cosmetic improvements.
I wanted you to see what we started with and the fun things we now have in The Woodlands. (Since I have been overseeing all this work it is one reason I haven't spent much time on my blog in the last couple of years.)
