Capital Improvements Fund

The Future of Pixie Park in the Marin Art and Garden Center

future

For 65 years, Pixie Park has been a special place for children 6 years old and under to explore their environment, discover their individuality, and make some of their very first friends. As a cooperative playground, it is also a vital community for parents to socialize, exchange ideas and watch each other’s kids grow.

Pixie Parents need your help to improve its facilities and keep the park thriving!

Please help by going to http://square up.com/store/pixiepark to donate now! 100% Of your donation will go directly to the Pixie Park Capital Improvements Fund and is tax deductible. Our 501(c)3 number is 94-6086438. Our goal is to raise $400,000 by early this fall so we can break ground in late October/early November.

“The environment itself had to speak to the kids. It’s not just assembling a bunch of athletic equipment. You have to catch their imagination, and you think about things like crawling, hiding, mystery, color, texture, line…all the things that would appeal to children.” Robert Royston, Pixie Park’s original landscape architect, circa 1958.

Improvements Include:

  • Restore the Wooden Train, Wisteria Arbor and Nook, and re-build a Mid-Century Modern Playhouse.
  • Stabilize the eroding hillside with new concrete retaining walls, a natural stone and log scramble play area, a custom slide, and a rope pull.
  • Build a new seating area at the top of the hill to enjoy the Mt Tam views.
  • Replace asphalt paving in Main Plaza with colored concrete paving.
  • Create an ADA-accessible, push-toy friendly ramp from the upper gate to the Main Plaza.
  • Throughout the park, replace wood retaining walls and stairs with concrete retaining walls, concrete stairs and natural logs and boulders.
  • Improve storm water drainage by adding area drains and permeable paving.
  • Provide new benches, picnic tables, and restore the artful Livermore drinking fountain.
  • Plant trees to provide shady play places.
