Webb Park Playground
On Saturday, February 15, 2014 BREC hosted a grand opening and ribbon-cutting celebration for the new Webb Park Playground. Thanks to the hard work and generosity of neighborhood residents, Friends of Webb Park, over $91,000 was raised to contribute to the overall construction budget. The Reilly family was the largest single donor, contributing $10,000 to the project. The groundbreaking event featured food trucks, games, First Tee Golf Recreation and Fitness demonstrations, and the Knock Knock Children’s Museum’s Mobile Playground. Current improvements include a multi-use lawn, two new play areas, a small walking loop and two outdoor pavilions.
