Doylestown Township’s own Central Park Kids Castle is fast on its way to a renovation due to the efforts of the Friends of Kids Castle group.
The mission of the group, which is madeup of community members, is to restore the structure withnontoxic, maintenance-free recycled materials so that it maybe enjoyed by current and future generations.
The organization needs to raise $150,000 by March 2013 tostay on target with current goals and to complete phase one—the restoration of the inside play area of the castle.
After the $150,000 goal is met a ribbon-cutting ceremony isplanned for June to signal the groups move onto phase two.
Phase two will include replacing every piece of playgroundequipment in and around the castle with modern materialsand updating the play opportunities with equipment designedby local children.
Schools in the area are collecting ideas by asking students to draw what they want on their dream play-ground. The organization leaders will then integrate the visionof the children into the new structure.
The Save the Kids Castle organization is in need of help fromthe community to realize the vision and move through thephases of the plan.
Current donation opportunities includethe sponsorship of specific art pieces, lovingly restored bylocal artists. These opportunities can be found in the onlinestore on the Save Kids Castle website.
The group is also asking the community to join the effort with monetary donations and volunteering opportunities. More information on how to
