Betti Stradling Playground Closed for Construction
The playground at Betti Stradling Park (10301 Wiles Road) officially closed on September 6, 2019, to start construction on Princess Meadow’s Playground.
The new playground is named for Meadow Pollack, an 18-year old student and Coral Springs resident, who was killed during the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School tragedy. Meadow dreamed of becoming an attorney and helping people. She was planning to attend Lynn University after graduation.
The new playground is funded through Meadow’s Movement, which was established by her family to construct a place for children to find enjoyment. Through fundraisers and generous donations, more than $500,000 was collected to construct the playground, which will include the installation of new equipment, shade canopies and safety surfacing. The construction is expected to last through November 2019, with a formal ribbon cutting to be announced.
In addition to Meadow’s Movement, partners in the project include: Butters Construction & Development, Top Line Recreation, Ellemar Enterprises and the City of Coral Springs.
