The committee has activated a GoFundMe Campaign to help us raise the money needed to purchase new playground equipment that has been chosen for purchase. Any amount beyond our proposed goal will be used for other park improvements. Any and all help will be appreciated. The link to the campaign is posted below.
The Village of Greenview established a Community Park Committee which has the responsibility to
assess, identify, and start the process of replacing the community’s present playground equipment. The present playground equipment was installed in 1966 and 1995. The committee will begin replacing the equipment that has recently been identified as “unable to be repaired”. This playground equipment is situated in the community park.
The community park playground is used by several groups including our local school district, surrounding school districts’ class outings, family reunions, children’s birthday parties and special occasions. The park also hosts community events such as our Labor Day Celebration.
Even though some of the playground equipment is over 50 years old, The village has been able to maintain it in a safe condition for use by children. Now, we are experiencing structural problems to the point they cannot continue to be repaired.
The Community Park Committee has identified a new piece of playground equipment that will contribute to the community’s needs. This new playground equipment would provide 2 to 12-year old with physical exercise and entertainment. To reduce cost, the new playground unit will not have comparable children activities as our present playground equipment provides. The committee’s goal is to purchase and install the playground unit in early June for the children to play on during the summer. This playground unit is the first piece of equipment needing to be replaced.
The Community Park Committee is in the process of raising $18,099.84 for purchasing and installation of the new playground unit. They are accepting donations as one means of raising the needed funds to accomplish their goal. If you would like to help by giving a donation toward the playground unit purchase, you can send it to: Greenview Community Park Committee, Greenview Village Hall 106 East Washington Street, Greenview, IL 62642 If you have any need for additional information about this campaign you may call the village hall at (217) 968-5314.
