Roxhill Park Playground Rebuild Needs Volunteers and Tools

The Roxhill Park playground, known to many as the Roxhill Castle was built by the community back in 1994. It is a unique and iconic park, and very important to the children of the Westwood and Roxhill neighborhoods of West Seattle. It is a bright spot in a historically underserved community. The play structure is now end of life and is being demolished. The Seattle Parks department agreed to rebuild the park in the same fashion and style, using the same contractor. In return, the community pledged to provide the labor.

The build dates for the project are set, November 2 through 6, and it’s time to assign work schedules. To sign up for the project, click here or email roxhillcastle@gmail.com and request a shift. It is very important to actually sign up. Without enough volunteers, this project will be cancelled.

The project staff still need additional volunteers. Please consider inviting anyone you think might find this project worthwhile (If your workplace has a Day of Service or other volunteer program,that would be great). There is a particular need for skilled workers (e.g. contractors, carpenters, handy-with-tools-people).
