What is the Heritage Park Playground Committee?
The Heritage Park Playground Committee is an all volunteer committee made up of residents of Bethlehem Township. The committee is trying to raise the funds and support to build a playground in Heritage Park. The mission of the Committee is to build a recreation area for all residents of the community, but especially for the children.
Can you tell us more about the playground?
This playground is a community-built playground, planned by the children of the community and built by community volunteers. This is being done in conjunction with Learning Structures, Inc. This company was chosen to assist us with the playground because of their reputation for designing and building safe playgrounds.
We are hoping to build a playground with two separate areas – one for smaller children, ages 2-5 and another area for the older children – ages 5-12.
Where is the playground going to be located?
This playground will be at Heritage Park, located off of Route 173 in Bethlehem Township, New Jersey. There are signs for Heritage park at the top of the turn-off, as well as a sign for Huczko Memorial Fields. Turn down Vliet Farm Road, the parking lots are located on the left.
How much money will the playground cost?
The playground is currently budgeted to cost $46,000.00. Donations and contributions of both money and supplies are gratefully accepted.
When will the playground be built?
We are anticipating the actual building of the playground to occur in the fall of 2003.
Who will build this playground?
The Bethlehem Township community will get together on one weekend this fall. Volunteers will put together the structures that the children chose on planning day. Many hands make light work, so please contact us to volunteer!
