Volunteers in St. Clair have been working diligently to plan a redesign and build of the popular Imagination Station playground on Carney Drive. After several months of planning and fundraising, the group set dates for construction which will take place September 10-15.
The planning process involved community input, design days for kids, and several volunteer committee meetings. The original playground was built in 1994 and according to Committee Director Matt Alley, has been well-loved. He said the group of volunteers is “trying to take this entire Imagination Station process and put it into the scope of what needs to be done for the next generation of children in the area to take advantage of the Imagination Station for decades to come.”
The effort to redesign and rebuild the park is completely donation and volunteer based, and they’re still trying to fulfill the goal. There’s an opportunity to contribute while having fun this weekend when the group hosts a road rally fundraiser Sunday in St. Clair. If you are interested in being part of the project or want to take part in this weekend’s event, visit their Facebook page “Imagination Station Rebuild” for all the details.
