As part of the Shape tradition of giving back, members of the Shape Family volunteered to aid in the restoration of Whistle Stop Park by installing new play structure equipment. Due to its wear and tear, the old playground at Whistle Stop Park was removed. After the playground’s removal, a community engagement meeting was held in December to decide how to move forward with a new play structure.
The community goal was to create a playground that offered appeal to children of all ages, and to make it safe. After hearing community members’ suggestions, the Village of Spring Lake Parks and Recreation Board designed a playground with various structures for all ages; including a train, a climbing apparatus, and pour in place rubber flooring.
Shape team members from various plants have been donating time and effort to the renovation of the park. Thanks to the combined efforts of Shape, and the Spring Lake community, the remodeling project has been underway since spring, with the hope that the new playground will be completed by June.
Thanks to all of the team member volunteers who have helped Shape give back to the Spring Lake community.
