Attached is a preliminary computer rendering of the proposed bathroom kiosk at Briarwood Park Playground. You have two opportunities to support this project. The building will cost approximately $30,000. Construction by Haven REI will occur later this fall after review and approval by the City of Brookhaven.
First, tonight (August 15th) from 5:30- til’ Friends of Briarwood Park in conjunction with Haven REI is hosting a fundraiser at Pizza Shack off Caldwell behind Savi Urban Market. The suggested donation for tonight’s event is $500-1000. If you only have $250 come anyway. Several in-kind donors will be there to tell their stories about why they provide generously for ongoing improvements at Briarwood Park. If you’ve sweated and toiled at Briarwood Park or provided donations, come as my guest (and big time THANK YOU).
The second event is a Brunch and Bounce Saturday morning at Briarwood Park, (August 17th) Playground from 10-12. Coffee, donuts and bananas will be provided as well as a jump house for the kids. Please bring whatever change you have in the couch, dollars on the credenza (did I just say credenza?) and lucky pennies you saved. Briarwood Park could use the luck and the pennies. This will also give you an opportunity to view the improvements at the Forest Patio. They include but are not limited to the renovated Picnic Area (Mayfield Signature Homes), community and butterfly garden (KH Homes, Buckhaven Construction and Lowes, Steve R. Walker Construction), irrigation system (Ferguson and Oasis Landscape and Construction), uncovered Azalea Trail and proposed Off Leash Area (BriarWOOF Park).
We’ve been overwhelmed by the local generosity provided so far to the efforts at Briarwood Park. Please join us.
