In March 2021, materials started arriving for the CHILD Center’s new playground. As of March 31, the playground is almost complete! We are naming this space after Joan Canton. Joan was our matriarch, a champion for children, and an instrumental voice in the creation of the Center. She passed in January 2021, but her legacy lives on in the hearts and works of those whose lives she touched.

You can see photos of the construction below. We will also be adding some additional gardening activities and a privacy fence along the back edge. Thanks to the many people who donated to help make this project happen!
