25 years ago the Penhold & District Lions Club put a playground in this area. The Sprecher Family donated the land for this playground. In 2011, a committee was formed with Penhold FCSS and Penhold & District Optimist Club to put in a new playground. With donations from Penhold & District Lions Club, Penhold & District Optimist Club, and through various fundraisers the equipment was purchased.
Public Works removed the old equipment and dug out the area. The pea gravel and wood was donated. The Optimist Clubs and volunteers put the equipment in in the Spring of 2012. With a grant from Red Deer & District Foundation, Penhold & District Optimist Club, Penhold Healthy Living Team, and with various other fundraisers, we were able to purchase three pieces of equipment. The equipment was installed in 2012.
