Playground Volunteer Work Party

Plant trees with us on Arbor Day!

Playground Groundbreaking Celebration and Volunteer Work Party, 9 a.m. - noon - This will be the first of four quarterly volunteer work parties throughout the year. We will begin planting the new trees for our playground!

This will be the first of four quarterly volunteer work parties we'll hold throughout the year.

More than 250 community members came together last year to create a shared vision for transforming Hawthorne's asphalt school yard into a tree-filled sanctuary with diverse play and learning opportunities.

Design plans are in place now, and we are excited to start the transformation. This will include the construction of a creative play area, the beginning of the "creek" running through the playground, new sitting areas, a new entryway to 39th Ave, and planting of over 25 new trees. 

Construction will begin in late spring. 

Join the fun! https://www.friendsofhawthorne.org/playground-pledge
