Children’s Park help needed

The design firm Play by Design has been chosen to help the City of Hood River lead the new community design and build process for the Children’s Park replacement.

“We’re very excited for the busy year ahead that will get us to reopening day. We’ll be looking for many volunteers throughout this time, (with) many different time commitments and skill levels,” said City Councilor Megan Saunders, who is helping lead the project.

“Currently, we’re hoping to find some folks in the community willing to help lead our efforts on community outreach and communication, volunteer recruitment and organization, and fundraising,” Saunders said. “In addition, we’d like to find one (or more) folks with knowledge of this community’s accessibility needs to help the process.”
