Local businesses, organizations and individuals have a unique opportunity to help fund a dairy-themed all-inclusive playground at Stephenville City Park.


Kelli Votypka, Stephenville’s director of parks and leisure services, told Beneath the Surface News that the city is taking donations for the project.

“Residents can donate to the project as a whole or to specific pieces of the playground,” she said.


Donors will get their names placed on the equipment recognizing their sponsorship.


Construction on the project will begin when the funding is secured and take about six months to complete.

“We hope to get started next year,” Votypka said. “It’s a very expensive project, but it’s very needed.”
