Requesting support for a wheelchair-accessible playground At Shirley Macey Park – 930 Chamberlin Road in Gibsons

see our new site


There are no public playgrounds in Grantham’s or Hopkin’s Landings, which requires a growing number of families in the area to drive to playgrounds elsewhere.

Many of our playgrounds have a pea-gravel base which is impossible to traverse on wheels. It is important to promote accessibility as we develop our community for the future.

What are we requesting?

We are gathering support for this initiative by collecting monetary pledges throughout the community. The Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) has committed to support the project by providing space, land preparations costs, manpower to assemble the equipment, plus future maintenance. We are turning to the residents of the Sunshine Coast to help raise the rest of the funds.

How much will it cost?

The playground is expected to cost $57,500. We have over $30,000 in pledges to date including:

  • Dr. E. Papoutsis
  • Gibsons Building Supplies
  • Gibsons Rotary Club
  • Len Wray's Transfer
  • Local residents
  • Marketplace IGA Gibsons
  • Nickle Family Foundation
  • Patra 2 For 1 Pizza
  • Rising Sun Holistic Day Spa
  • Smitty's Oyster House
  • Success By 6 ® Accessibility Fund
  • Sunshine Coast Regional District
  • Super Valu
  • Wheatberries Bakery

How can you help?

  • To make a pledge, please call Sheila at 604-886-0766 or email with ‘playground’ in the subject line. The SCRD will issue tax letters for donations of $100 or more.
  • Volunteers are needed to help with fundraising. Please contact Sheila at 604-886-0766 or email with ‘playground’ in the subject line.
  • Pass word on to others who may be able to donate funds or volunteer.

Thanks for your consideration. Let’s make this playground happen!
