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 repair its facilities and make the playground inclusive and accessible to people of all abilities.

Please help by going to rebuildpixie.org 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 $425,000 by September 2018.

“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.

Phase 1 improvements include:

  • Re-grade and repave all paths, stairs, ramps, and the plaza to be durable and comply with current Americans with Disabilities Act standards.
  • Create ADA accessible “beaches” and transfer stations that allow at-grade, wheelchair access into all the play areas, thus making all play opportunities accessible to people of all abilities.
  • Replace the old non-accessible hillside slides with new ADA accessible hillside slides placed on the main circulation route. We are installing metal slides that do not interfere with cochlear implants.
  • Stabilize the eroding hillside with new concrete retaining walls, mulch, and natural stone and log scrambles.
  • Improve storm water drainage by adding area drains and permeable paving.
  • Restore the Wooden Train and add a digger and splash table to the Sand Play Area.
  • Provide more seating areas to enjoy the hillside views, and add an ADA accessible picnic table.
  • Plant trees to provide shady play places.
  • See the Pixie Park illustrative plans.

Phase 2 improvements include:

  • Renovate the Pavilion and the Restroom to meet current Building Codes and Americans with Disabilities Act standards.
  • Repave the historic Splash Pad area behind the Pavilion and make the Splash Pad functional again.
