Help Make Puma Park in Truro a Reality

Did you know, Truro is the only Cape town without a community playground?

Puma Park, the new Truro community playground will be built next to the new Truro Community Center on Library Lane in North Truro from October 22-26, 2008.

The playground will be built using recycled plastic lumber and will meet all national safety standards.  Not only will Puma Park be a place for children to play, it will be a learning center, "incorporating local history, images and art into the design."

Don't miss the upcoming Kids Fair and Commemorative Tile Making Event on Sunday, June 8 from 11am to 3pm (rain or shine) at the Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill.  Tiles are $10 each with all proceeds benefiting the playground. There will be food and fun and your tile will become a permanent park of the park!
