Where is the park?

The park is at the site of the former Jones Park Playground off Ottari Road south of Jones Elementary School 844 Kimberly Ave.

Where do I park my vehicle?

Parking will be available each day at the former Steinmart parking lot at 846 Merrimon Ave and on Saturday and Sunday at Ira B. Jones Elementary Parking lot. No parking at the school weekdays.

Do I need skills to help? 

Nope, if you show up, we will find something for you to do. We need skilled and unskilled labor. If you need a desk job, let us know, we may have a job for you too.

Can my kids help? 

Yes, kids 10 – 13 can work within arm’s length of an adult, one adult per child. Kids14-17 can work without an adult. A parent or guardian must sign a waiver for those 14 to 17 working without an adult.

What if I have kids under 10 and can’t find a sitter? 

We will have childcare on Saturday and Sunday for kids 3-10. We will have limitted availabilty so please let us know in advance by filling out our Childcare Signup.

Can I bring my tools? 

Yes, you may. We are also asking the community to lend tools here.  If you don’t want to share your tools, you may bring them with you.

Do I need to pack a lunch or dinner? 

Only if you want, we are feeding all of our volunteers working two or more shifts in a day. Unfortunately we cannot feed those working one shift.

What about water and bathrooms? 

All volunteers will get a water bottle and there will be lots of water stations to fill up and stay hydrated. Porta potties will be onsite with handwashing stations.

What if it rains? We keep working under tarps. We have just five days to build this playground so we work in all weather unless there is lightening or dangerous conditions.
