“We appreciate the spirit of community and generosity that the parents of Ashford Park have been demonstrating by leaving toys on the playground at Ashford Park,” said Assistant Parks Director Gary Schussler. “It’s our responsibility to keep all city parks neat and make sure that toys and equipment are safe to use and in good working order.”
Rather than just discarding toys their children have outgrown, parents or others who wish to donate toys should bring them to the city’s parks department for a safety check. To keep city parks safe and visually attractive for all visitors, toys that are unsafe, worn out or broken will not be distributed.
Brookhaven residents who wish to donate toys or other items to local parks can access a donation request form on the parks and recreation department website and drop the form and the item(s) off at the Lynwood Park Recreation Center, 3360 Osborne Road in Brookhaven.
