Victory for Kids
Overview

In the summer of 2000, inspectors found the playground equipment at Victory Park unsafe, and determined that it needed to be removed.

Shortly afterwards, Citizens for a Victory Park Playground began working toward a new community-built playground at the park.

After successful initial fundraising, the group hired a nationally-recognized architectural firm, Leathers and Associates, to come up with a design.

After a “Design Day” with Albion school children, during which children contributed their ideas and drawings and named the playground “Victory for Kids,” the architects arrived at an exciting plan.

As of this date, over $125,000 needed for materials and maintenance has been raised.

This is a huge project for Albion, involving our whole community. Donations have ranged from $15 to $10,000 and every dollar counts. Community members not only come up with the money for the project, they buy the materials and actually build the playground themselves.
