North Rosedale Park Civic Association is asking for your help! Our playground equipment is due for much needed repairs and upgrades. Our Association has provided a healthy, welcoming play space for children, which includes Cooke Elementary School, along with the surrounding communities, for over sixteen years, as they learn and explore outdoors. Over the many years, our equipment has begun to deteriorate leaving us with a play space that needs materials to ensure maximum safety. Safety is paramount, however right now we are unable to provide the much needed funding to make the necessary improvements. Imagine climbing structures, swings, slides and spring rockers that work.

Our project details would include, making necessary repairs, replacing the sandbox with non-toxic sand and materials. Removal of weeds, laying weed barrier materials, along with applying ADA Compliant Mulch to make the play space environment inclusive of all children. The immediate estimated cost of the repairs and mulch is $6,800.00. Our goal is to reach $10,000.00, which will help us sustain the playground for years to come. Any extra will be used for grounds maintenance and improvement.

Longer term, we look to provide a play space, that brings movement opportunities for children with disabilities. With your generous donation , you could make a child’s outdoor play experience, safe, accessible and full of excitement. NRPCA is as 501C3, so all contributions are tax deductible. 10% of your donation is earmarked for administrative costs. Thank you so much in advance!! Checks can be mailed to the community House, 18445 Scarsdale, Detroit, Michigan 48223
