It took many community volunteers, with materials and the supervision of a highly qualified playground construction company, to complete this state-of-the-art playground installation in just one day!!

The playground opened for ‘fun’ on Sunday April 22nd after the ribbon cutting ceremony. It was a beautiful day with hundreds of Feather Sound residents and children obviously enjoying this great new addition to the neighborhood. Thanks to all the volunteers and community businesses that contributed! And to Pinellas County for the grant that has helped make this possible.

The playground is not the only new state of the art improvement to our Recreation Area.  Beautiful picnic shelters, graceful park furnishings, elegant pavered walkways, and well-designed human and pet drinking fountains are now in place.
