Play with heart this #GivingTuesday and the Oak Brook Park District Foundation. It takes a team to build a dream.

Oak Brook Park District Foundation wants to hit a home run this year. We teamed together with Oak Brook Park District and Unlimited Play Playgrounds designed a playground that serves all community members, regardless of age or ability. It will be located in Oak Brook’s Central Park and will feature many innovative pieces of equipment including a dual track ride zip line, pour and play baseball diamond and two levels of play fully accessible through ramping. We anticipate breaking ground in the spring of 2018 with the project completed August 2018.

However, this project will not be possible without your support. Our goal is to raise $2,500 on November 28 to go towards the playground. This online event is one day only, so don’t miss your chance to make a difference in your own community!

What is #GivingTuesday? It is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in counties around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. Join the movement today by giving back to your – our – community.
