Rotary Donates Playground to Caldwell

by Teresa Akersten, Editor, The Caldwell Patch

The Kiwanis Oval will once again have a playground thanks to the generosity of the Rotary Club of the Caldwells.

The Rotary has donated funding for a playground which will be installed on the patch of grass between the Caldwell Community Center and Borough Hall just outside the entrance to the Kiwanis Oval field.

Caldwell's governing body passed a resolution Tuesday night accepting the gift. The value of the donation was not disclosed.

Rotarian Tom Vetter said the 40' by 40' playground will be completely fenced in. The equipment will be suitable for children ages 3 to 8.

The installation will take place in about two weeks, added Rotarian Sam Kent. Kent said the project is expected to be completed in time for the Caldwell Community Center's campers to use.

A playground once stood at the far end of the field, but was removed before a turf field was installed at the Kiwanis Oval last year.
