Reid Park’s community playground serves nearly 1,000 residents and provides a green, healthy outdoor exercise environment that also includes a stage and bleachers for children’s arts, crafts, education, presentations and entertainment.

As part of its “Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids.™”Initiative, Project EverGreen partnered with Ruppert Landscape and Habitat for Humanity to donate a landscaping face-lift to the Reid Park Community Playground.

“Our mission is to preserve and enhance green spaces where we live, work and play and the ‘Healthy Turf. Healthy Kids.’ Initiative spearheads those efforts,” says Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen. “Parks, athletic fields and recreational play areas are vital to healthy, thriving communities. One of the ways we demonstrate our commitment is by mobilizing local green industry contractor volunteers and corporate partners to donate their time, treasure and talents to make this valuable initiative possible.”
