The following is a press release from Woodbridge Community Playground:

Thanks to a state bond issued to the Town of Woodbridge, the Woodbridge Community Playground is moving ahead with its plan to build an all-accessible playground “Pease Place” at the Woodbridge Athletic Fields on Pease Road. 

Pease Place will be the first playground in Woodbridge to accommodate children with physical, sensory, or developmental disabilities.  

The playground will feature age appropriate play structures, inclusive swings, accessible pathways, elevated sand tables, and activity panels enabling children of all abilities to play together. The playground will accommodate children from toddler to pre-teen. 

“We are extremely grateful to Senator Joe Crisco and First Selectman Ellen Scalettar who were instrumental in supporting the playground and securing state funding to help our dream become reality,” says Teri Schatz, co-founder of Woodbridge Community Playground.  

Teri Schatz and Colleen Inclima, two mothers who met six years ago, formed a nonprofit and have been working diligently to bring a new playground to the town of Woodbridge.

“We are excited to announce our Paving the Way brick fundraising campaign,” states Inclima.

Funds raised will help with the completion and maintenance costs associated with the playground.  

“We welcome the community’s support, and what better way than to see your name, child’s artwork, or company’s name on a custom brick at the playground?”  

There are also opportunities to donate additional components to the playground. Bricks are available to order online at www.woodbridgeplayground.com, by calling Colleen at 203-927-3160 or email wcplayground@gmail.com.
