Designed by our Kids, built by Volunteers!

Seamster Park Playground
Over Three Years in the making, the day has finally arrived!!
The New Seamster Park and Playground was Designed by our kids, built by volunteers!  The community of East Hampton, CT came together to build this state-of -the art  Playground from August 6-11, 2019. It might look like a playground “dropped out of the sky” but we’re here to tell you a crowd of people sacrificed their time, skills, talents, tools, and hard work to make it happen. The true joy came when the children tore through the ribbon and raced to be the first to play on it.
Thank you from the depths of our hearts if you’re a volunteer, sponsor and/or have donated to this project in any way.
HURRAY for East Hampton!!!

“This is really going to be a breath of fresh air for the community to see the kids playing in a safe environment where they can have a place to go now,” Director of East Hampton Parks and Recreation Jeremy Hall said.
