GREAT WEBSITE: If you are a parent of a small child in Greenburgh/the river villages - check out therivertownplaygroup.com. It's a great web site that highlights some terrific events, things to do with your kids. There is a discussion section dealing with safety, babysitting and much more. Earlier this week I highlighted another good website: www.rivertownsguide.com. That guide keeps updating fun things to do around our area for everyone.
CHILDREN AT HIGHVIEW SCHOOL WANT A NEW PLAYGROUND AT WEBB--Recently, I spoke to students at the Highview School. The big issue: A new playground to replace the aging wooden playground at Webb Field/Richard Presser park. This park is next to the school--but is a town park. New playgrounds use plastic rather than wood. I read that some communities around the nation are applying for federal stimulus funds for playgrounds. We are looking into this funding source. Over a dozen years ago parents (led by Grace Rapkin) volunteered their time --helping the town reduce the costs of playground construction. The Webb Field playground, off of Central Ave, has been used by thousands of kids over the years and is one of the most popular playgrounds in the town.
