Volunteers planning to help rebuild the Parchester Village park and playground in one day should benefit from a newly released event schedule.
The rebuilding effort will take place between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the park and playground at 900 Williams Drive. All volunteers are welcome no matter what skills they can offer. There will be something to do for everyone, organizers said.
8:15 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. Kick off ceremony and volunteer deployment
11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Best viewing of playground construction
1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. Final construction phase and adjustments
2:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Ribbon cutting and #JrGiants first pitch ceremony to dedicate new Ball Park.
The rebuilding effort comes after months of planning. The park was selected by Berkeley-based children’s shoe company Livie & Luca and the City of Richmond to undergo a renovation similar to last year’s remodel of Belding-Garcia Park, which was transformed in one day with the help of more than 300 community volunteers.
This video details the inspiring Belding-Garcia Park rebuilding effort that is expected to be recreated in Parchester Village.
