Saint John’s Memorial Playground Opens

A beautiful KidBuilders® playground named Hannah and Jack’s Sunshine Headquarters just opened in Rockwood Park, New Brunswick. It was built to memorialize RCMP officer Jason Porter, and his children Hannah and Jack Porter, after a tragic car accident took their lives in February 2009. Christy Bursey is thankful to see her family memorialized in such a happy way.

The ‘Headquarters’ took seven years of planning, and was made possible by generous donations from local businesses, community members, the city and both municipal and provincial governments. Collaborations with Marc Doucet, operations manager for parks for the City of Saint John, helped the project along. CBC News quoted Christy as saying “My kids were young, Hannah was 5 and a half, and Jack was almost 3,…They loved being outside, they loved playgrounds, and they loved Rockwood Park, so ending up here was perfect.”

More information and video of the opening are available at this CBC News story http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/memorial-playground-porter-family-1.3640441

Lucky The Lady Bug Appears In Children’s Colouring Book

For 69 years, since the founding of Paris Playground Equipment, children have been playing on our equipment in Lions Park in Paris, ON, our home town.

PlayPower products are so ingrained in the minds of Parisians that they even appear in local publications, such as the I Love Paris (Ont.) children’s colouring book by local author Emery Silva. ‘Lucky The Lady Bug’ is the image chosen to represent playing in Lions Park. We are happy to be part of cherished memories of the area!
