PHP Park and Playground Update

We are delighted to share with you the progress we have made towards funding Potato Hill Park, to be built on the grounds of the Lincoln Community School. After a delay at the federal level, we have secured the $100,000 Land and Water Conservation Fund of Vermont matching grant. In addition, through donations and other grants, we have raised $135,000. Most recently, we were granted $7,500 to build a timber frame pavilion.

We are closing in on our goal of raising $275,000 to build all of Potato Hill Park - the accessible walking trial, upgraded sports fields, a timber frame pavilion, new play structures, gardens and a stage - in the spring and summer of 2018. We have completed the public bidding process and have commitments from two contractors to do the site work and construction. Given that the construction season is limited and busy, we intend to sign contracts in the next month. In order to do this, we need to raise the final $40,000.

Potato Hill Park will be a community resource that offers a diversity of outdoor and recreational opportunities for all community members and visitors to our mountain town.

Please join us in creating Potato Hill Park. Donations can be made through Paypal on this webpage or mailed to us at: Friends of LCS, PO Box 361, Bristol, VT 05443

Thank you for your support!
