The Gunter Park Foundation Playground Project is a custom‐designed children’s playground. This is a grassroots effort with community members joining hands to provide a state‐of‐the‐art playground not only for the children of Gunter, but for children throughout the area.

Here’s one way you can help!

Please join us as we team up to build the playground. Volunteers do not have to be skilled, trained or have any special tools; they just have to show up enthusiastic, energetic, willing to help and ready to have fun, fun, fun! If you are a skilled builder (anyone comfortable cutting a straight line with a circular saw), we welcome your expertise and assure you we can find a special task to utilize your skills.  We have tools provided on site.

Do you enjoy working with people and interested in playing a key role in the playground construction? We have skilled Construction Managers looking for Volunteers, skilled Culinary Manger looking for Volunteers, and Teacher’s looking for Art/Painting Volunteers, and babysitters.

Playground construction will run Monday, May 16th through Saturday, May 21st. Each day will consist of three shifts:

  • Morning: 8:00am ‐ 12:00pm
  • Afternoon: 12:30pm ‐ 5:00pm
  • Evening: 5:30pm‐close (between 8 pm and 9 pm)

Volunteers are encouraged to work as many shifts/days as possible.


Childcare is available for children age 9 and under. Children age 10‐13 may work on site with an adult, however, they must be within arms‐reach of the adult at all times. Children age 14‐17 may work independently but may not use power tools. Since we believe well fed volunteers are happy volunteers, snacks and meals will be provided to volunteers.

Join us as an individual or come with an entire team. We encourage and welcome large groups of volunteers. For more information and to sign‐up to volunteer, please visit us at Thank you for joining us in supporting this wonderful community event.
