Save the Brick Walk Community Playground
The Brick Walk Community Playground in Plainfield, Illinois was built by a work force of volunteers from the community in May 1994. With the guidance of Leathers and Associates this playground was designed for longevity and creativity. When the playground was constructed the Walker\'s Grove Parent Teacher Organization created a Playground Committee that would monitor the playground, create maintenance schedules, and organize volunteers. This plan for long term care was put in place so that the playground would last at least 25 years. For the last few years sections of the playground have been boarded up instead of repaired, leaving the playground in need of even more work. The current administration at Walker\'s Grove Elementary School recently announced to it\'s staff the plan to tear down the custom playground and replace it with smaller, manufactured playground equipment. Help protect a one of a kind landmark in your community. Tell District 202 not to remove the Brick Walk Community Playground. __________________________________________________________ We, the undersigned, petition the Plainfield Community Consolidated School District 202 to put a stop to the proposed plan to remove the entirety of the Brick Walk Community Playground at Walker\'s Grove Elementary School. Following the original plan for maintenance will help bring the playground back to excellent working condition. By avoiding demolition, the playground will continue to offer a unique recreational experience for the children in our community for years to come.
