Local nonprofit Harper’s Playground is $450,000 short of its $3.2 million goal to complete the Chelsea Anderson Memorial Play Station at Marshall Park in Vancouver.

The project, a partnership with the city of Vancouver, broke ground July 11. The re-envisioned playground is meant to help expand accessible outdoor play spaces, according to a press release.

The nonprofit is asking the community to help raise funds by purchasing a recognition brick or paver by Dec. 31.

The 1.22-acre play space is slated to open in late spring 2023, pending full funding. It will feature wheelchair-accessible equipment, including Washington’s first wheelchair swing and an elevated sand area.
