The playground was completed in early July 2011 with an official Grand Opening and Ice Cream Social taking place on July 20, 2011. The playground equipment includes a play structure for children ages 5 - 12, swing sets and spring rider play equipment. There are tot swings for younger children and traditional swing sets for older children. This equipment meets all current playground safety and ADA standards. This playground equipment replaces the old equipment that was removed last year because it did not meet current safety standards.
The District's Recreation and Parks Commission had been spearheading grant writing and fundraising efforts that had brought in more than $35,000 including grants from the Truckee Tahoe Community Foundation, Lahontan Community Foundation, Tahoe Mountain Resorts Foundations, Tahoe City Rotary as well as donations from many personal donors. In addition, a grant was received from the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association for an additional $44,000 with the remainder coming from the District's Recreation and Parks reserves.
