We need your help to raise funds for the continued improvement of Kiwanis Park at Woodlawn. Our park has been in the making since 1989, and it has changed and grown into the busiest park in the city. Our latest project to bring "Destination Playground" status to the park is currently under construction and will open on March 2, 2024.
We still are looking forward to renovating the existing swing structure and providing rubber ground cover in that area, this area now being the oldest section of the park.

The newest addition includes playground adventures that are not present in any other playground in our county.  The single largest and key piece to our youth section is Landscape Structure's, "Crab Trap", a 33' by 36' steel frame structure that has no shortage of climbing challenges, made to hold up to 75 children at one time, this 3D, net climbing obstacle course is meant to challenge older children and develop problem solving skills. It is also ADA compliant and accessible. The frame is hot dip galvanized in order to provide advanced corrosion resistance in coastal environments. The second piece to our new youth area, is the "Alpha Tower", it is a three-story playing tower and will have double slides. The turbo twister slide comes down from the third story and is an enclosed tunnel slide of 12 feet in length.  From the second story position an eight-foot slide also descends to the new rubber surfacing, that will replace much of the sand in this area and also make all of the new equipment areas ADA accessible.

The old tire swing will go and will be replaced by the "Oodle Swing" which is very similar, but ADA accessible, from a wheelchair or a walker, is a larger and more modern version and can accommodate up to six children at a time.  Last and by no means least, our wooden benches, just do not hold up in such a moist Florida Environment, while they gave parents many years of enjoyment and a place to sit near their children, the last seven remaining benches will be replaced with very colorful "Kaleidoscope" benches.  These benches are layered up for structural integrity and are made of 73% recycled materials, and are a beautifully artistic addition to the park, especially since it lies within the Creek Arts and Entertainment District.

We had literally hundreds of sponsors from our community, who without each and everyone's help this would not be possible, but we wish to recognize our three major sponsors, Heidi and Branden Baird, of Chambers Truss, who believed so much in us they donated three times, Impact 100 Martin and ME's Team for making this project a reality. It takes a village, it is true, and without the help of all of our sponsors, the City of Stuart (and many dedicated employees there), as well as Kiwanians, and individuals and community groups, who combined their talents and service to make a better world for the children and families in our community, it would not be possible.  It shows how wonderful things can happen when we all work together!

 We still have many improvements and restorations including new signage that we would like to add; please consider a donation to helping our community's park remain one of the top-rated children's parks in Florida.  Donate using the "Donate Now" button shown below, drop us a note at Kiwanis Club of Stuart, PO Box 532, Stuart, FL  34995, or email us at kiwanisclubofstuart1938@gmail.com.

Donors of $1,000.00 or more receive recognition on one of the Giving Trees located on the Kiwanis Building in the Park.  Thanks for all of your support and for enjoying the playgrounds in Kiwanis Park at Woodlawn.
