The Tyler City Council has approved an $80,000 KaBOOM! grant for playground equipment at Gassaway Park that will open fall of 2019.
KaBOOM! has partnered with a funding initiative that will be announced as construction begins.
The grant includes playground equipment for a 25,000 square foot play space and shade structure for this park.
“This grant will be similar to the Southside Park Project,” a spokesperson announced.
To include the community in the park design, KaBOOM! will hold a ‘design day’ on July 30th. The event will include a 1-hour site walkthrough, 2-hour design session with children, and a 2-hour design session with adults.
Schedule of construction:
Prep days – September 19th and 20th
Build day – September 21st
Grand opening – September 28th
KaBOOM! has over 17,000 play spaces that service over 9 million kids and engage 1.5 million volunteers.
