The Drew Ford Family Playground at Jackson Park opened November 2010. The Northmont Park playground opened in January 2014. Plans are underway for the Vista La Mesa playground as the next project.
It’s Child’s Play is to raise $1 million to replace five playgrounds in La Mesa parks. The playgrounds identified are in Collier, Jackson, La Mesita, Northmont, and Vista La Mesa Parks. The new playgrounds will provide accessible, age appropriate and fun playgrounds that mirror the community desires for their neighborhood parks. The Foundation is pleased to report completion of the first It’s Child’s Play playground renovation which opened in November 2010. The Drew Ford Family Playground honors its donors with a transportation theme featuring car climbers and resilient surfacing depicting a roadway surrounding the play structure. The second playground at Northmont Park funded by Grossmont Center and Bill and Norma Verbeck opened in January 2014. This playground has a nature theme and features a decorative art tile seat wall. The tiles were created by students at Northmont Elementary School.
