New Playground Coming To Mount Pleasant Thanks To Generous Supporters

In this update, a new playground on its way for kids in Mount Pleasant thanks to some very generous supporters.

The fundraiser to build the new Timbertown playground at Island Park lasted only 45 days but raised more than $100,000.

The city hosted a Crowdfunding campaign to make it happen, raising $50,000 of it.

Donations made were matched by the Public Spaces Community Places and the Michigan State Housing Development Authority.

The new playground will replace the one that stands there now and will be ready for kids by May 2017.
