Bay Court Park Playground Fundraising
View the Bay Court Playground Video
There is an exciting project that is happening right here in Clarkston and we know you will want to be involved. The Bay Court Playground will be undergoing a much needed and well overdue renovation and we need your help!
The Bay Court Playground was community built in Summer 1994. A dedicated committee raised the money, then provided sweat equity as they assembled the playground, laid mulch and supported each other throughout the five-day building process. For twenty-seven years, those families and the rest of the Clarkston Community have enjoyed picnics, parties, afternoons in the park, and plenty of park time creating memories. The community saw a need, the need inspired a dream and they turned that dream into a reality. Now, the legacy of the dream continues as the time comes to replace this play structure.
The new playground will be an inclusive space, so visitors of all abilities and ages have the opportunity play. To fund this new structure, our department has secured a 50% match grant for $200,000 from the Land, Water and Conservation Fund (LWCF) for the replacement of the very popular playground. Additionally, our Capital Improvement Plan budgeted $200,000 for the playground replacement. With $400,000 of total project money, research began and ITPRS realized that to replace the playground at the desired scope for children of all abilities, more funding was needed. In December of 2020, the Independence Township Board of Trustees unanimously approved a dollar for dollar match in any funds raised, up to $100,000! With the Township Boards match, this project could total $600,000!
