The playground will be completed in two phases. The project will begin in October 2021 as the playground equipment is installed. The second phase will include pouring a rubber surfacing and landscaping planned for Spring 2022. The site of the playground will be 90 feet long and 47 feet wide with landscaping designed by Bookworm Gardens of Sheboygan.
Financial support will be provided by confirmed pledges from Jay Christopher, The City of Sheboygan, Harbor Centre BID, Catharine B. Stayer Foundation, The Becca Grace Foundation, Terry Kohler Family Foundation, Kohler Foundation, Inc., Sheboygan Evening Lions Club, The West Foundation, and Sargento Foods.
"Play is essential to childhood growth, it is a powerful healing component, and having a public, ADA-accessible playground in the heart of downtown Sheboygan guarantees our community's children and visitors have a safe space to play and grow no matter their socio-economic status or abilities," said Erdman.
