Bridgeway Plays first project, The Playground, opened in 2016 to much acclaim and continues to be a vital addition to the community park.
Our model of a Private and Public partnership between the City of West Sacramento and the community it serves showed us a path forward to bringing the community together, with government, to better meet the needs of the community.
The original playground at Bridgeway Island Community Park
The original playground structure was put in place without community involvement. The structure lended itself to activities for older children whereas the community had predominantly younger children who were unable to utilize the space.
Bridgeway Play started as a group of parents who loved the park, and whose children disliked the playground, so they decided to do something about it and build a playground the whole city could be proud of.
The Bridgeway Play group conceived of the idea, developed the plans with Miracle Play Systems, and raised over $50,000 from the community to kickstart the project.
Plans are approved & construction begins!

Construction started last week at Bridgeway Lakes Park on a new playground. The play structure improvement has been eagerly anticipated as the Bridgeway Play Community group and City of West Sacramento joint project gets underway. The playground, located at 3650 Southport Pkwy, is expected to take six weeks to complete and will feature a large variety of play equipment suitable for 2-12 year olds, an added shade structure and a new rubber surface.
An opening event is scheduled for Saturday, May 28.
Bridgeway Lakes Community Playground opened last weekend with new play equipment funded in part through the activities of the Bridgeway Play Group. Below, members from Bridgeway Play present a check for $50,000 to the City of West Sacramento.
