The New Wildwood Park Is Open For Play
May 21, 2014
Today’s grand opening of Wildwood Park’s new playground featured a ribbon-cutting ceremony by officials from the City of Golden Valley, Hennepin County, and the Robbinsdale School District 281/SEA School, after which the SEA School kids enjoyed their first recess with the new playground equipment.
Kids from the SEA School and residents from the Wildwood Park neighborhood helped decide on the new playground design features. The SEA school committed $15,000 to the $100,000 project. The City of Golden Valley received an additional $50,000 from the Hennepin Youth Sports Grant Program, without which the project would likely not have moved forward, says Birno.
Four other Golden Valley playgrounds will get new playground equipment this summer. Brookview Park’s grand opening was scheduled for earlier this week, but due to the excessive rain, installation will be completed sometime in June. Watch the City website for the new grand opening date. Grand openings are scheduled for June 9 at Lions Park, July 14 at Gearty Park, and Aug 11 at Glenview Park.
