We’re still here!  We’ve had several people email to ask what’s happened with the improvements to the Solano Playlot.  We are still moving forward.  Much of the work since the Spring Celebration/Egg Hunt has been behind the scenes – working with the city to finalize a design for the park and to work out the details.  More on this below.  (If you didn’t make it to the Spring party, check out the video to see what you missed!)

UPCOMING EVENTS: We’ve scheduled 2 events in the coming weeks.  Please mark your calendar.

Saturday, Sept 24, 10am – 2pm – Park clean up party:  We’re sprucing up the park in preparation for our 2nd Annual Halloween Party.  Come for half an hour or all 4 hours – up to you.  We’ll be sorting out broken toys, pulling weeds, cleaning the sand, and repainting.  The park plans will also be on display, and several people will be available to answer questions.  Please bring water, gloves, and a snack if you need one.

Sunday, October 30, 2-4pm, 2nd Annual Halloween Festival: Save the date!  More details to follow, but click here for a peek back at last year’s Halloween Party.

PLAYFUL COLORS CONTEST: After many months of work, the plans for overhaul of the Solano Playlot are nearly complete.  We want our hard working volunteers to make one of the last decisions — the color of the play equipment.  Our core group of planners has worked out 3 different color schemes for the play equipment, and we are submitting those to a vote.  If you’ve volunteered for one of our previous events or work parties, or are able to come out and join us on Sept 24th, you’ll receive an email with voting instructions in the coming weeks.

When will the new park be built?  We are not sure, as there are still a few more steps to go through.  Most likely not until spring, but we’re still crossing our fingers for fall.

If you have any questions or would like more information, don’t hesitate to email us at  Please share this with anyone else you think may be interested.

Thanks again for all your help and support over the past 18 months as we’ve worked to improve this park and build a strong community around it.
