2017 Great Play Giveaway Winner Announced!

2017 Great Play Giveaway Winner Announced!

We are so excited to announce Gustavo Vergara, Culture and Leisure Services Director, from the City of Cape Canaveral as the winner of the Great Play Giveaway presented by Parks & Recreation Business and Camp Business Magazine! As the winner, the City will receive a brand-new Nucleus®/Intensity® playground valued at almost $30,000!

As part of the third annual contest, all recreation departments and camps could enter to win a playground for their community that will help children develop skills that transcend the playground, including motor skills, cognitive planning and cooperation. Cape Canaveral will install this brand new playground customized with bright colors to fit the surroundings and enhance their city branding.

“Playgrounds and parks play an important role in providing a space for families to be active, to socialize and get much-needed time outdoors,” said Michael Phelan, president and CEO of BCI Burke. “We are so happy to be able to partner with Northstar Publishing, Inc. and provide a deserving community with a playground that will provide years of active enjoyment and development,” Phelan added.

Cape Canaveral is planning to install the new playground this summer to provide an additional place for children and families to gather and play and envisions it will fit into the welcoming and unique environment they look to provide to both residents and visitors.

Cape Canaveral Mayor, Bob Hoog said, “On behalf of the City of Cape Canaveral, I’m grateful for the opportunity to enhance children’s lives through active play with this amazing gift. The playground will be a welcomed addition to Manatee Sanctuary Park which is our flagship riverfront park. The playground will improve the user experience for visitors to the park for years to come and we thank Northstar Publishing and BCI Burke for hosting the contest. Children from our summer camp program chose the color scheme and are excited to see their selection come to fruition.”
