Good News: Burton Park set to re-open this Thursday.
October 21, 2008
At long last, and to the delight of many San Carlos youngsters, the new playground at Burton Park is set to re-open this Thursday, October 23rd. According to the nice folks at the Park & Rec Department, there are plans for a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony which will start at 5:00 PM and features our Oscar-winning Mayor Brad Lewis.
The new playground equipment looks fantastic, and the park will now have a water-fountain area for the kids to get wet in, much like the ones at Stafford Park in Redwood City. This will surely be a big hit on the warm days of summer. Here's the official link from the City of San Carlos with all of the details of the park renovation:
On a related note, the nice folks at Harmony Yogurt are conducting their third fundraiser to help defray the cost of the new park. On Thursday and Friday of this week (23rd and 24th,) Harmony will collect $1 from every yogurt they sell on those two days, an donate it to the San Carlos Parks Foundation, which funds the park development. So treat your body to something good on Thursday and Friday, and help the parks out while you're at it!
