Party in the Park



Party in the Park Flyer

Fort Pierce - (July 2013) The Kids' Crossing Steering Committee would like to invite the entire community to a "party in the park" on Saturday, September 7th at 4:00 PM. All 1993 and 2013 volunteers and supporters are asked to attend to take part in a commemorative photo before the playground is razed in preparation for its rebuilding! These volunteers and supporters will take part in a professional aerial photo shoot at the event to preserve for years to come.

This family-friendly event will also feature free snow cones, popcorn, drinks, arts & crafts, and a 50/50 drawing. In addition, visitors can purchase a personalized fence picket for $35 to be placed around the perimeter of the new Kids' Crossing Playground and reserve to save your original picket from '93! The pickets will have up to 20 letters or numbers professionally inscribed, just as they did 20 years ago. Picket order forms are located on the Kids' Crossing website, and on the group's facebook page.

The "party in the park" will be held at the playground site located near the intersection of Virginia Avenue and 23rd Street. Donations are still being accepted for the project, which is $35,000 shy of its goal to provide the very best playground in the area. Just as in 1993, hundreds of volunteers will also be needed build the locally designed playground November 7-11. Those interested in volunteering are asked to sign up online at Both skilled and non-skilled labor is needed to complete the project in just 5 days!

The new composite materials which will be used will give the structure, which was designed by local children, a lifespan of up to 50 years. Numerous business and generous donors have already committed their support of the new endeavor, donating more than $190,000. Sponsorship perks are still available for those who donate, which are outlined on the website, plus naming opportunities are available for sections of the playground. Donors who contribute will have their names memorialized on a plaque at the playground site.


Members of the Kids' Crossing Steering Committee and local children are excited to plan a wonderful "Party in the Park" event on Saturday, September 7th.
