On Wednesday, February 29 at Dolores Park Cafe, the Friends of Dolores Park Playground held an organizational and planning meeting for volunteers, donors and supporters to prepare for the Grand Re-Opening of the new playground. Included in the volunteer sign-up sheets was a waiver to enter and tour the playground construction zone that night. A total surprise to everyone, but a few member of the Friends steering committee.

We found an amazing new playground. Twenty adults were let loose on a self-guided tour of all the new play structures and amenities. The Helen Diller Playground at Dolores Park is the nicest and most creative I have ever experienced. This was also the first time most of the group toured the construction site and they all were extremely pleased! We were all giddy with excitement. The new playground is a safe place for kids to take chances.

Without exposing too many details, the boat is back, there are swing sets for all ages, and slides that will blow your mind. A date for the Grand Re-Opening of the new playground is getting confirmed. Yes, Rec and Park is still looking at a date in March. If you would like to volunteer or donate to the event you can get involved here.

Friends of Dolores Park Playground is also hosting a “live” online event where YOU share your favorite photos and memories of the playground. Take us back in time, show everyone some of your favorite moments. If you played here as a child, dig up those old photos too! We love our new playground. CAn you tell?
