Pixie Park is a volunteer-run cooperative playground for children age six and under. Surrounded by redwoods in the beautiful Marin Art and Garden Center, the park is open every day to its members except during major paint and repair parties. The park has fun, safe play structures and swings for small children and beautiful trellises that shade picnic tables, big and small. The park is unique in that it is gated and requires a key to get in and to get out, thereby ensuring that children will not leave without their parents’ knowledge.
Through the participation of its member families, Pixie holds several events throughout the year for its members and for the community. These include the Halloween Parade, the Holiday Bake Sale, the Pixie Spring Fair and other social events. Members also receive the Pixie Patter, a newsletter that keeps them informed of events and other activities going on at the park.
Families fulfill their membership by volunteering their time for Pixie’s various events and fundraisers. Grandparents with young grandchildren are also members of the park and give 5 hours of their time.
Pixie Park is a great place to meet and make friends. The events are fun, and the parks’ supportive atmosphere and beautiful setting make it a safe, fun place for children to explore and play.
