McKay Park Playground Replacement Project
McKay Park is a community park located in NE Salem.
The description of the park on the City of Salem website
“McKay Park is adjacent to McKay High School and
features tennis courts, exercise stations, basketball
courts, soccer fields, and walking/jogging trails. Spread
24 acres, it also has picnic tables and a
playground for children.”
What this description does not say is that most of
the playground equipment at McKay was removed several years
ago because it became unsafe. We want to change that. We
have the backing of the City of Salem and the city has
agreed to fund the site preparation for the new playground.
We just have to raise the funds for the actual equipment.
For a small foundation such as ours, this is a major
undertaking. But we are confident we can make this new
playground a reality with your help. The generous
supporters of Salem Parks Foundation have come through for
us before and we are excited about this project for the NE
Salem community. Please note on your check that your
donation is for the McKay Park playground or use our PayPal
DONATE button and note the playground project in the
“special instructions” field.
Thanks for continuing to support Salem Parks
Foundation and your Salem parks.
