Jean Sweeney Open Space Playground
Fundraising by the Kiwanis Club of Alameda for purchase of playground equipment
The Kiwanis Club of Alameda and the Alameda Kiwanis Foundation (recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization) are raising funds to build a playground at the Jean Sweeney Open Space Park.
Jean Sweeney Open Space Park is
the only open space park of its kind in the area and it will fill a need for
outdoor recreational space in an underserved area of Alameda. Kiwanis have
been serving the children and community of Alameda since 1923 and the Jean
Sweeney Park has a close tie to Alameda Kiwanis. Jim Sweeney is a member of our
service club and his wife Jean found the documents that allowed the city of
Alameda to purchase over 20 acres of land at 1924 prices. Now we want to help
build a playground at the East End of the Jean Sweeney Open Space Park but we
need your help.
Be a part of the excitement. Give what you can. We will keep you updated and when the time comes the JSOSP Organization will have plenty of volunteer opportunities in the park.
There are 15,000 kids in the city that need outdoor play space that is safe, durable and fun.
