FOWP Seeks Volunteers to Build New Playground

With the help of 75 volunteers, there will be a new playground coming to Williamston in July. Friends of Williamston Parks seeks volunteers to participate in a community build, in which volunteers assemble the playground under a supervisor from the playground equipment company, Miracle. The new playground will be located at the City of Williamston’s Volunteers Community Park on the corner of School and Putnam streets.

The build dates are July 25, 26 and 27. Volunteers need to be at least 18 years old and able to work a minimum of a half-day shift. To volunteer for the playground community build, contact Heather Galecka at 517-285-7607, email or register at .

The playground will encompass an area approximately 85 by 50 feet next to the Trent Allen Memorial Basketball Courts. It features four elements for ages 2 and up offering opportunities to swing, slide, climb, hang, balance, spin and bounce.

The Friends of Williamston Parks began in 2015 to focus on park improvement efforts in the Williamston area. For more information about the Friends of Williamston Parks, visit
