Volunteers Install New Playground in Forest Hills Park

GreenWorks joined Tualatin Hills Parks & Recreation District, the Beaverton Optimist Club, a representative from Ross Recreation and neighborhood volunteers last Saturday to install new playground equipment for Forest Hills Park Playground in Beaverton.  THPRD Maintenance Department staff directed GreenWorks and other volunteers through the process, installing landscape structures play equipment including 4 swings, a play structure and a mobius climbing wall. Forest Hills Park is one of three area playgrounds slated for new equipment in addition to upgraded ADA accessibility, new site amenities, plantings for buffers and shading, and fencing and seat walls.  Saturday’s installation brings a collaborative design between THPRD, GreenWorks and Ross Recreation  to life, based on community feedback from the internet and public meetings.

Forest Hills is the second area park to be built by volunteers.   John Marty underwent installation last month and is now open to the public. http://www.prweb.com/releases/2011/5/prweb8459301.htm.  New play equipment will be installed at Raleigh Hills Park before the end of the month.

Special thanks to THPRD, GreenWorks staff, and all the volunteers that pitched in to make the playground installation a success.  Forest Hills Park will open to the public in early July.
