New Playgrounds

Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination.  It can also improve dexterity and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength. Play is important to healthy brain development.  It is through play that children at a very early age engage and interact in the world around them.


Many months of planning and fund raising were dedicated to our two playground upgrades before we received our first cost estimates in 2016.

-In February 2017: Federal and Provincial governments responded to our proposals and announced cost share funding.   

-The playgrounds were constructed over the summer of 2017.

See link ​for installation process:

-A local launch was celebrated on December 6th, 2017


A sincere thank-you to the Home and School committee who worked tirelessly to organize, involve families, participate in design plans, liaison with the Village of New Maryland and the New Maryland Lions Club, and campaign for donations.
