          WE                                 ♥                         Imagination
Can you believe it’s almost been 10 years since our great community came
together to build Imagination Station?
                                                                         Station!

Well our playground has been very loved and it’s time to shine it up a bit.
We need funds for playground repairs, replacement of equipment and of course we have a wish
list of new things we’d like to add!

We have created a gofundme page to help: www.gofundme.com/we-love-imagination-station

We need to replace:
• Spider Net - $12,000
• Bridge with Roping - $4,000
• Purple Tube Slide - $3,500
• Chain Wall - $225
• Conveyor Belt Bridge - $375
• Paint & Supplies for Murals - $500*

The original installation cost of the playground surfacing was $300,000. The life expectancy is 12-15
years. We need to replace the higher use wear areas such as at the end of slides and swings.

*We would be delighted to have volunteer artists repaint the murals. If you were one of the
original artists, we’d love to hear from you. This is a fall project. Contact us at 262-569-2199.
