NEW! We are excited to announce the start of playground installations and renovations, in conjunction with Playground Specialists and Harris Construction. Beginning the week of June 12th, work will start off at the new Lodge playground and continue through planned improvements in each village. While we have worked hard to minimize the impact to existing trees, some tree removal will occur during the preconstruction phase. During installation, small equipment such as mini excavators will be present - please do not enter the construction zone at any time. Weather pending, work will conclude at the end of June. We look forward to completion of this project so your kiddos can have a more enriching summer!
