Let us give you an update on the Magical Bridge Playground Projects!
We wish we could wave the magic wand and make all these Magical Bridge Playgrounds miraculously appear — today. We know how vital each playground will be in Silicon Valley (and beyond) and are working hard to bring them to life. It takes a village to fund, design and build each project and we are thrilled to share that more Magical Bridge Playgrounds are coming soon. Here is an update on each local project (and more).
Yes, we’ve had inclement weather delays, including unhealthy air quality from the fires and 86 days of rain. We are so grateful that the sun is finally shining! If you drive by Red Morton Park you will see the trucks and construction crews out there building and working hard. We hope to open Magical Bridge Redwood City by December 2019. Donations moving forward will go towards contingency costs, community programming, and events once the playground is open to the public. Visit https://www.magicalbridge.org/redwoodcity for updates on construction and opening.
We are in the final design phase of Magical Bridge Playground in Sunnyvale and plan to begin construction in Fall 2019 with an opening in 2020. We are still accepting tax-deductible donations. Contributions of $300 and above will be recognized with a tile on the donor wall inside the new playground. There are also opportunities to sponsor buddy benches, retreat huts, and zones. Visit https://www.magicalbridge.org/sunnyvale to support the project, include your name on the donor wall, and see updates on groundbreaking and construction.
We are in the final design phase of Magical Bridge Playground in Morgan Hill and plan to begin construction in Fall 2019 with an opening in 2020. We continue to present to community groups in the South Peninsula emphasizing Magical Bridge Morgan Hill will serve as our most southern location. We are continuing to accept tax-deductible donations for this project. Contributions of $300 and above will be recognized with a tile on the donor wall. We are also speaking to buddy bench, retreat hut and zone sponsors. This is a great way to leave a lasting legacy to EVERYONE living in Morgan Hill and beyond. Visit https://www.magicalbridge.org/morgan-hill to support the project, include your name on the donor wall, and see updates on groundbreaking and construction.
Magical Bridge Playground at Rengstorff Park is a $4.5M project. We now have approximately $920k remaining to raise to fully fund the project. Might you, your company, organization, foundation or community group be that MAGICAL spark to help us reach the fundraising finish line? We are now waving the MAGICAL WAND and hope you will give what you can. Every donation matters and is needed. Donations of $300 and above will be recognized with a tile on the donor wall inside the new playgrounds. Would you like to have your name included on a plaque on the buddy bench or retreat hut? Wouldn’t it be extra MAGICAL to have your name attached to a zone? Yes, it would. Kindly give what you can here: https://www.magicalbridge.org/mtnview
Keep up to date on events happening at the Magical Bridge Playground in Palo Alto. We have monthly activities, concerts, book readings and more! Follow our events page on Facebook.
We continue to advocate play for EVERYONE and had the opportunity to share our work at TEDx. We hope you will take a moment to watch and learn about the need for play at every stage of life — and our journey to bring Magical Bridge to other communities. Stay tuned for national media coverage on Magical Bridge in May 2019.
We thank you for your ongoing support and can’t wait to make all these playgrounds (and more!) a reality!
With profound gratitude,
Team Magical Bridge
