Civic League expands park's offerings

Saturday, September 11, 2010

Current Cloverdale Civic League officers are, from left, treasurer Julie Hoffa, secretary Diane Ladd, master gardener Cindi Sanders, junior member Meaghan Halloran, vice president Lori Halloran and president Angela Ladd.
CLOVERDALE -- The Cloverdale Civic League will be adding a toddler addition to the Clover Patch playground by the end of this fall. A play structure for ages 2 to 5, along with an age-appropriate playhouse, will be added to the Cloverdale Park. The current playground serves ages 5 to 12.

This structure will be purchased with funds received from a land sale in the Parker Place subdivision. Several lots were donated to the civic league approximately two years ago from First National Bank of Cloverdale. With land sales finally on the rise, the civic league will be busy with their ongoing relationship at the Cloverdale Park.

With future sales, the civic league will be able to re-grade, line and complete the soccer field and install a paved walk path.

"We are super charged about having the funds to do another project at the park," Civic League president and founder Angela Ladd said. "The Clover Patch took 2 1/2 years to complete and a week to install, and we can still think back and exhale. Thanks to Mother Nature and the torrential rains on our build weekend, it was an exhausting experience for us all and really burnt out some of our membership.

"But every time I drive past the park and see our playground getting used and the shelters full of reunions and birthday parties, I know that we will reap the benefits for years to come," she added. "That makes it worth it."

Anyone with questions about the Cloverdale Civic League or an interest in the sale of a lot or lots may call Ladd at 795-5139.

This is great news. Our granddaughter who is 3 spends some weekends with us and loves playing outdoors. She really is too small for play on the equipment that is at the park now and will enjoy the upcoming addition. It is so important for our youth to have safe places for playing. Thank you, Cloverdale Civic League, for making this available.

This is awesome. I know you all have worked really hard on the park, and I thank you for making a great place for my kids to play.
