Greentree's Accessible Playground has nearly reached their goal of $350,000 with another donation yesterday, July 5.

"We received a cheque for $1,000 from the Drumheller Physicians Association. That is a great donation that has helped us get closer to our goal," stated parent council member, Nikki Isley.

The money raised so far has been enough for the equipment, but not enough to resurface the pour-in-place ground.

"Being able to to the surfacing at the same time is really important, so we're really trying to hit that goal and we're very close," Isley added.

So, when will demolition and construction begin?

"The Town is hoping to come excavate the site in July here and probably the build will be at the end of July, possibly August. We're just waiting for dates and we're just waiting to hit our goal," explained Isley.

The Greentree Accessible Playground organizers will be making an announcement through Drum FM on Friday, July 7 for the public.
