On behalf of the Magical Bridge Foundation and the City of Morgan Hill, we are so THANKFUL to announce that we have begun the final design phase on our $4.2 million Magical Bridge Playground in Community Park! Soon, we will be hosting the final community input meeting where we will share design plans, solicit feedback and share how Magical Bridge Playground will give the Morgan Hill community a place to play, regardless of ability, disability, size or age. Stay tuned for the date and location for the community input meeting on our social channels.
Like with any big construction project, we know there can be unexpected costs – so we will continue accepting donations for this project to make sure the playground is MAGICALLY realized. And good news – there is still time to have your name included in the donor wall! Any donation of $300+ will include a permanent tile on our donor wall, leaving a lasting legacy of kindness, compassion, and empathy in your community. Tiles make great holiday gifts! A friendly reminder — Due to the passage of the CARES Act, you will be able to deduct up to $300 in charitable donations on your 2020 taxes, even if you do not itemize them.
Construction of Magical Bridge Playground at Community Park will begin in Summer 2020 and open to the public in 2021.
