MAGIC is Coming to Morgan Hill!
Introducing Magical Bridge Playground in Morgan Hill
All Abilities. All Ages. All Welcome!
The City of Morgan Hill is happy to announce that we have begun the final design phase on our $4.2 million Magical Bridge Playground in Community Park! In the coming month, we will be hosting the final community input meeting where we will share final design plans, solicit feedback and share how Magical Bridge Playground will give the Morgan Hill community a place to play, regardless of ability, disability, size or age.
Stay tuned for the date and location for the community input meeting on our social channels. Link: https://www.facebook.com/morganhillplayground/  
Expect the construction schedule and plans soon. Like with any big construction project, we know there can be unexpected costs - so we are continuing accepting donations for this project to make sure the playground is MAGICALLY realized. And good news - there is still time to have your name included in the donor wall! Any donation of $300+ will include a permanent tile on our donor wall, leaving a lasting legacy of kindness, compassion, and empathy in your community. Tiles make great holiday gifts!
