Frog Park Amenity Update & Earth Day Party Preview

Monday, March 9, 2015

Many people have been asking when the Frog Park enhancements will be ready.

While we received strong support for the enhancements, we are adjusting the design to address concerns raised by neighbors close to the park.

A goal of the enhancements is to provide additional play opportunities for toddlers and disabled children, especially via use of a swing and the spinner. Parents with mobility challenges will find the enhancements make the park more accessible.

In other news, we thank you - individuals, businesses and foundations - for your contributions. We are close to our $50K fundraising goal for the enhancements, and hope to reach it soon. Watch for information via and in The Rockridge News.

Thank you park users and residents for your patience during this lengthy outreach and design process. If you have comments or questions, write me at

- Carol Behr, FROG Chair, and Theresa Nelson, Park Co-Founder
