Community groups to donate funds for new playground

Community groups have said they are willing to raise about $250,000 as a gift for the Recreation and Park Department if the funds are used to make a new play area in Duboce Park specifically for older kids.

The area would have a net climber, an overhead climber and slide shaped like boulders and logs on a rubberized surface alongside the basketball court.

Several neighborhood associations such as Friends of Duboce Park and Duboce Triangle Association are backing the plan and will be presenting it to the commission at the 4 p.m. meeting Thursday.

In December, Rec and Park estimated the project would cost about $250,000.

Friends of Duboce Park has already secured about $50,000, and applied for at least $90,000 in other contributions.

The upgrade is similar to what has been going on at neighboring Alamo Square park http://www.sfexaminer.com/local/61569602.html.
