Newtown Memorial Playground

On Dec. 11, 2014, more than 500 students and local dignitaries gathered at Park Road Park for the dedication of the playground, which not only serves as a destination for recreation, but also as a tribute to the teachers and students who were lost in the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

Planning began in early 2013, students grabbed pencils, crayons and paper and put together some very creative renderings.

After the design was finalized, the department dedicated its annual Hats Off to Parks Luncheon and a special jazz concert at Freedom Park to raise money for the effort.

In October 2014, construction began. The department recruited hundreds of volunteers for the build. Some experienced some brand new – all committed to the cause.

After only a week’s worth of work, the playground was complete. Its design, truly one of a kind – unlike any play area in Mecklenburg County. More importantly, its message was that of remembrance and solidarity for a community that lost too many too soon.
