Let’s help the Village of Shelby make this project the best and most inclusive that it can be as this playground will be an asset to your community and Oceana County for years to come.

Join us on April 11 at 6:playground image with accessible swings00 pm

Location: Shelby Village Hall, 218 N Michigan Avenue, Shelby, MI

The Village of Shelby will be submitting a grant application to purchase and install a *Universally Accessible Playground at Getty Park. The Village of Shelby is doing their due diligence to ensure that Getty Park is designed for all users and will create new opportunities for individuals with disabilities to enjoy outdoor recreation. At the writing of this invite, the Village is still finalizing the revision of the park’s master plan for this project. But I am happy to report the master plan is not only planning to install the universal playground, but there is a splash pad being planned, a gazebo, restrooms, picnic pavilion with a gas fireplace, seating areas with companion seating, accessible picnic tables, natural landscaped areas, as well as basketball, tennis, and pickle ball courts.

We hope that you will join us on Monday, April 11th, at 6:00 pm to help us support the Village’s efforts with the renovation plans for Getty Park. Once completed Getty Park will become a destination for you and many other people to recreate and enjoy these universally designed park amenities.

Should you not be able to attend the meeting, please check out the conceptual renderings of the playground attached to this communication. We would then encourage you to write a brief letter expressing your support of a universal playground and the benefits of this park with accessible park amenities for your family. Those letters can be sent to the Village of Shelby at the address below.

Please reach out to us if you have questions or concerns. We look forward to our time together.
