Fantasy Land ~ Phase One

 

There are many ways to get involved in bringing Sophie and Madigan Lillard Memorial Playground to Frederick MD — from your generous donation to hosting an event to increase community engagement. No donation amount is too small and everyone is welcomed to join us in our efforts!

The City of Frederick has shown their commitment and excitement for the project with a significant contribution in allowing us to use the land, as well as infrastructure support. Now, as a community, we need to raise additional funds to make Sophie and Madigan Lillard Memorial Playground at West Side Regional Park in Frederick MD a reality. Your donation will give countless families a place to PLAY LEARN and CREATE together for many years to come!

With major sponsorship, as outlined below, your name can be prominently displayed for the life of the playground.
