We are raising funds for a new Swimming Beach Playground. In 1995 the founding members of the Friends of Itasca installed a new playground at the swimming beach. Perhaps you know it well, as a place for kids to blow off a lot of energy and as a welcome site for parents and grandparents. However, such popularity takes its toll; and the time has come for a new playground. One that will appeal to and accommodate all children. Friends of Itasca has made this project top priority. We have been busy planning and fundraising and NEED YOUR HELP.Tap the GiveMN button. It’s as simple as that.
