Sunshine Playground

The proposed Chloe's Sunshine Playground project is named after Chloe Bennett, a Syracuse City child. Chloe has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and West Syndrome which limit her ability to speak, walk, and to play on traditional playground equipment with other kids. This separation inspired Chloe’s mother to gather support to create a place where Chloe and other children can play together. The proposed playground will bridge this gap making Chloe's dream a reality.



The proposed fully accessible playground will feature ramps, swings, slides, a music garden, shade structures, a water splash pad, and restrooms.


The park will be a unique place for the children of Davis County. It is planned to be built at Centennial Park. (1979 S. 1900 West)


 
There have been multiple local fundraising events, very generous donations from local businesses, and a federal grant application completed to gather the necessary funds for construction. These valiant efforts have raised $251,000.  The total project cost is estimated to be $900,000. The first phase’s estimated cost is $410,000. The first phase would include everything but the restrooms and splash pad. It is hopeful that construction will begin soon. 


We’re excited to start construction on the playground once we have raised enough money to complete the project. Please take a minute to familiarize yourself with the many ways that you can help make this dream become a reality.
