How We Started
Bridgeway Play began as a parent-lead effort to enhance the playground in Bridgeway Lakes Community Park. Working with local sponsors, and a team of parent volunteers, we raised over $50,000 to contribute to the City of West Sacramento Parks Dept. to build a better play space for the families of West Sacramento.
The Park was completed and opened in May 2016 and has been a resounding success.
Because of the success we had in designing, building and fundraising for this project we created a non-profit organization to build and enhance creative play spaces, and produce family friendly events promoting local sponsors, all over West Sacramento.
In 2018 we entered into a partnership with the City of West Sacramento and the Parks Dept. to help fundraise to build shade structures at local parks in the City.
Our 2019 goals are to raise funds for 4 parks in West Sacramento:
- Alyce Norman
- Pheasant Hollow Park
- Sam Combs Park
- Bridgeway Island Park
