More than 80 people showed up this past weekend to make the dream of a new Campbelltown Community Playground come to life.

The community building project was held Saturday, Oct. 28, at 129 Lawn Road, Palmyra. Volunteers showed up bright and early to begin work at 8 a.m., according to project spokesperson Barbara Kauffman.

“The project is the one of many for the Campbelltown Community Alliance, which previously raised funds for evergreen trees, the pavilion and picnic tables in the park,” Kauffman said in a release.

According to the release, the playground includes a “cozy cocoon” for children with noise sensitivity, slides, a zip line, swings for children ages 2 to 5, swings for children ages 6 to 10, and “much more.” There’s also a music area with a built-in xylophone, the release noted.

The playground will be handicapped-accessible. Once the cement footers have cured, Kauffman said, four tractor-trailer loads of mulch will complete the project.

The committee is very excited to see this project come to life,” CCA president Jen Bushta said in a statement.

“We have completed several projects throughout Campbelltown,” Bushta said, adding that the nonprofit organization “is small, but mighty! We are thrilled to add the playground to the mix.”
