Why pay an architect?





Why this location?

The location was chosen with approval from the City – they want to replace the equipment but can’t afford it. This central city location allows easy walking-distance access to families who live south of downtown – other Chatfield playgrounds are too far for little children to walk or bike. This location also is near the library, the summer concerts, the grower’s market and downtown businesses making it a fun all-around outing for families and very attractive to out of town visitors and those passing through on Highway 52. With the current school location, this playground is used daily by hundreds of kids making upgraded equipment a priority.


Why pay an architect?

We chose to work with Leathers and Associates because they offer the most cost-efficient plan that will be designed for our needs. They will work with us through the entire process and remain available as long as this playground is in existence. Yes, we are paying an upfront design fee but this includes expert guidance throughout the building process and for the life of our playground. We feel working with a pro will help us create a playground that is appropriate for our town, for our children and will last for years to come.
