New Online Guide From General Recreation, Inc. – Community Build Playgrounds
Since we have been quietly guiding clients through the community build process for the apst 20 years, we thought it was time to share our committment to the process. We have launched a completely separate website dedicated soley to the Community Build Playgrounds concept. On this website you will find valuable insights about the structure and organization required and lots of other information to insure a successful project.
Community Build Playgrounds save our clients as much as 30% over typical project costs while also providing many additional benefits over a typical contractor type of installation. When a group sets out to complete such a project, they sometimes get more satisfaction than they origonally expected. The sense of community pride in local residents pulling together, the sense of indiviual ownership of the playground and the friendships developed during the community build process are rare occurances and can not be ignored as enormous extra benefits that come with these projects.
Our Community Build Playgrounds website outlines the basic structure of the process beginning with getting organized and walks you through the steps cuminating in build day. We offer our 20 years and hundreds of community build experiences as the basis for what we are presenting. Videos can be viewed of community build playground being constructed. There are numerous photos and playground project references for your review as well. Read actual client testimonials and more. We even go over some fundraising best practices and grant opportunities that are available.
If you have not considered constructing a playground with community volunteers, you might want to visit our website and learn more about the process and what we offer to our clients.
