The current equipment at Green Acres Park located at 6th Avenue East between 16th & 17th Streets, was originally installed in the late 80's or early 90's according to the City. Backus Community Center wants to help keep local playgrounds fun for kids, encouraging kids to get outside and play!

This project shows that as a community, we can all make a difference, even if it is just one penny at a time!

To contribute to the project, please drop coins or donations off at Backus Community Center, Hardees, Freedom Downtown, VFW, Chamber of Commerce, ODC or United Health Group. If you would like to be a collection point, please contact Robin at Backus at (218) 285-7225.
