One day left for playground picket pickup

This Saturday marks the final deadline for those looking for their memento from the former Project Playground at Twin Lakes.

During the cleanup of the playground, which burned down April 24, hundreds of personalized fence pickets were recovered. These pickets will be available for pickup this Saturday, Nov. 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This will be the final time the pickets will be available, as the ones that are left over after Saturday will be taken to the dump, according to a City and Borough of Juneau release.

Interested parties can pick up their pickets from the City Landscape Office in the Dimond Park Complex. More information is available on www.goprojectplayground.org, including the list of pickets that were found. Further questions should be directed to Lisa Eagan Lagerquist at 586-0893 or lisa.eaganlagerquist@juneau.org.

The playground will be rebuilt, and people are invited to purchase pickets for the new playground. Individuals and families can purchase a picket for $60, and businesses can for $120.

Each picket will allow up to 17 characters (spaces included). To buy one, people can fill out an order form on goprojectplayground.org, or email pickets@goprojectplayground.org with any questions. They will also be on sale at the Juneau Public Market.
