Fundraising Garage Sale River Ridge Park – Bridgeport Community Centre
We are 65% of the way there! Help us meet our goal to break ground in the Spring!
The neighbourhood of River Ridge, in Bridgeport North, Kitchener, will see an additional 300 to 400 homes built over the next few years. With just two swings to support the existing neighbourhood and more homes being built; a committee was formed to raise money for the purchase of additional swings. Currently they are fundraising with the intent to implement two additional baby swings and two additional “belt” swings. The funds raised would also be used to purchase a “disc swing” as well as more trees and seating for the park.
The River Ridge Park Improvement Committee hopes that these improvements will help children to build friendships as well as to promote their physical development.
The formation of the committee and is subsequent work has resulted in many new ties being made and friendships being developed. The committee’s work to engage neighbours to participate in the project has brought the community together, most recently in our Hallowe’en Party, held in the park. More fun events are being planned and community residents are being kept apprised of the park project through personal correspondence as well as information posted on the neighbourhood website http://groupspaces.com/RiverRidge.
River Ridge is a thriving, vibrant neighbourhood. When the weather cooperates, so do many volunteers who maintain an ice rink at Kiwanis Park. Theneighbourhood has traditions of fireworks and is beginning to organize fun family events with the help of the City of Kitchener’s Festival of Neighbourhoods program. The wonderful “swing project” will certainly continue to build ties within our community.
Tax receipts for any donation over $10 will be issued by the City of Kitchener.
