The design is complete; the rocks and logs have been collected; $55,000 of the funding has been secured through a Lodging Tax Grant. Construction will begin as soon as the playground is fully funded — this summer, we hope!
In February, Orcas Islanders chose “Island Hopping” as the design for playground. In March, volunteers Ken Katz, Zack Leck, Chuck Greening, and Mark Mayer collected windfall logs donated by Moran State Park. The logs are currently being peeled and milled at Helsell’s West Sound Lumber. Rocks came rolling in from all over the island. Your donation, through giveorcas.org (May 1 – 17) will help fully fund the Playground-on-the-Green, a nature-based playground for island and visiting children at the northwest corner of the Eastsound Village Green.
