Two years ago, the Cochranton Area Redevelopment Effort (CARE) along with the Cochranton Lions Club who own and maintain the community park launched a fundraising effort for the replacement and refurbishing of the playground equipment. It would require $50,000 to update the park. Funds were raised from community members and organizations along with grant monies from the Crawford Heritage Community Foundation. Much of the expense for labor and construction was donated by local businesses and individuals and through their efforts, four new pieces of equipment were installed: the Lunar Net climbing structure, the Double Viper slide for older kids, two Freedom swings and the Voltage Play Structure for 2 to 12 year olds. All play areas have been mulched to cushion the drop zone. Today children of all ages can be seen enjoying the new equipment.
Cochranton Area Redevelopment Effort (CARE) along with the Cochranton Lions Club wish to thank everyone who donated their resources, time and monies to this project. Please join us at Cochranton Lions Community Park on Sunday, August 5, at 2 PM for a dedication and celebration of the “new” playground.
