As you might know, Our Playground at Stadium Place was tragically burned in September, 2008.
To read more about the fire, click here for the Baltimore Sun articles. All the parts that were destroyed were rebuilt, by volunteers like you, between May 5th and 10th of 2009.
If you bought a picket or play structure that was destroyed in the fire, we thank you,
and have replaced it.
A company called Leathers and Associates was hired to design the blueprints for construction.
They also provide a clear step-by-step overview of the 'community built' process.
Check the 'Original Build' section soon to learn more about how they came and interviewed neighborhood children to get ideas for the design!
