The Mount Joy Rotary is pleased to announce that the fundraising is nearly complete, and the heavy equipment will be moving into position in anticipation of the event of the season for kids 1-12 in the Mount Joy area.  Kids’ Joy Land is coming back to a park near you!

A kick off event, the official ground breaking, will be held on Sunday, July 12th beginning at 3 pm at the playground site at Mount Joy Borough Park adjacent to Kunkle Field.  All are invited to celebrate with family-friendly activities including Rita’s Water Ice, a coloring station, face painting, and other activities.  Families may purchase pickets or purchase and create hand print tiles that will become part of the playground that will be built in mid-September.    Entertainment will be provided by local children’s entertainer, Phredd!

Stop by for some fun, and connect with friends and neighbors as Kids' Joy Land rises from the ashes!  Additional parking is available at The Gathering Place on Pine Street.  Participants are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets.
