Harrington Beach State Park Playground Project

The Harrington Beach State Park Playground Project Needs Your Support!

Dear Friends of HBSP,
We are happy to tell you that we are raising funds to have playground equipment installed at the park. This will offer another amenity to day visitors, campers, and users of the cabin for persons with disabilities.

Playground PlanOur committee has reviewed a number of equipment options over the past year. After viewing our financial resources, we set a budget of $100,000 for a project that was first included in the park’s 2004 master plan, and then deferred for several budget cycles. We were fortunate to have recently received a bequest from the estate of Jeanne Hare, whose original intention was to help fund the cabin. We will use some of that bequest to fund the accessible portions of the playground. Other money will come from our past sales of firewood, t-shirts, bird and bat houses, and from past donations.

Please help us to meet our goal of raising the $30,000 we still need. The project cannot be submitted and accepted by the Natural Resources Board until we have the entire amount.

We are a 501c3 non-profit organization so donations can be tax deductible, or made as qualified charitable distributions by persons over 70 ½ from certain accounts. Please check IRS and your state tax rules, or with your tax accountant, to confirm that your donation is eligible for tax deductions.  

Help Us Reach Our Goal!
