Crossridge Park Playground

Crossridge Park Playground
The official ribbon cutting ceremony and opening of the Crossridge Park Playground has been rescheduled for Monday, September 15, 2014 at 5 p.m. due to the weather and anticipated forecast. Staff needs to complete landscaping items at the playground that they have been unable to complete due to the rain.

The Parks & Recreation Commission would like to thank the approximately 50 volunteers that helped during the Crossridge Park Playground Build Day on Saturday, August 23, 2014. The volunteers helped pick rocks from the playground site, dig holes, assemble slides and other equipment, and ultimately install each piece. The Parks & Recreation Commission could not have accomplished all that was done without the help of the dedicated volunteers that devoted a day to build a playground.

The Parks & Recreation Commission would also like to thank Casey’s General Store for donating bags of ice and pizza for the volunteers and Kwik Trip for donating donuts, coffee, and water for the volunteers.

Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPS) and national non-profit KaBOOM! awarded the City of Milton a $20,000 Let’s Play City Construction Grant as announced September 9, 2013. The City of Milton received the grant because it was selected as a 2013 Playful City USA community by KaBOOM! on May 7, 2013 and will use the grant to build a new playground at Crossridge Park with community involvement using the KaBOOM! Community Build Model, which requires the use of volunteers to construct the playground, near the new Parker YMCA.
