Rededication Ceremony for Tiger Shark Cove Playground
Join Wellington’s Council at 10:00 am on Saturday, May 5th as they dedicate the newly redesigned playground at Tiger Shark Cove Park located at 13800 Greenbriar Boulevard. Following the ceremony and ribbon cutting, children and families are invited to enjoy the playground.
In March 2012, nearly 500 volunteers joined forces to upgrade the Tiger Shark Cove playground. Improvements include a sunken pirate ship play area, a submarine with porthole and a new obstacle course. Wellington also focused on improved safety and accessibility features, such as adding a new wood fiber floor to make it easier for wheelchairs to navigate through the play area.
Various businesses and community partners volunteered their time to make this project a success, including the Wellington Art Society, Austin Outdoor, Whole Foods Market, Home Depot, Trinity West, St. Peter’s United Methodist Church, Wellington High School’s Key Club and Forest Hill High School’s football program.
Residents who sponsored the original Tiger Shark Cove playground more than a decade ago by purchasing a picket are encouraged to visit Village Park at 11700 Pierson Road to claim their pickets. The original pickets are available for pick-up through the end of April. For any questions regarding pickets, please call (561) 791-4005.
