FROG Mixes Annual Events, New Plans; Your Help Can Support Park Vitality

Tuesday, December 22, 2015

This past year, FROG has conducted annual park maintenance events to support the park, and made significant efforts to settle park enhancement planning and design. Following are some of FROG's activities and issues over the past year:

Frog Jump Notes

Frog is pleased to announce park enhancement plans are moving forward.

On October 25, the FROG committee met with the immediate Frog Park neighbors, along with City Councilman Dan Kalb, to share our updated design proposal. After much design work to address neighbor concerns and the long-term needs of the broader community, we were able to present a new design with a reconfigured layout of play equipment and added trees.

Many people have been asking when the Frog Park enhancements will be ready.

While we received strong support for the enhancements, we are adjusting the design to address concerns raised by neighbors close to the park.

A goal of the enhancements is to provide additional play opportunities for toddlers and disabled children, especially via use of a swing and the spinner. Parents with mobility challenges will find the enhancements make the park more accessible.

Progress Report: Frog Park Swings Funding

Thursday, July 10, 2014

Since we first announced plans to move ahead with new swings and play features at Frog Park last December, we have raised approximately $22,000. We are well on our way to the $50,000 goal.

Volunteers will be out in the park several weekends this summer to answer questions, take donations and show you revised layouts where the new structures (toddler and regular swings, ADA swing, pole spinners, see-saw, merry-go-round climber) will be located.

FROG News: DMV Plan Ready For Implementation

Saturday, March 2, 2013

Wonderful news for neighbors, greenbelt lovers, Farmers Market goers, and Claremont DMV staff and patrons: The long-awaited DMV tree and park restoration will happen soon.

The final plan, created by Suzanne Schrift of MIG Inc. and incorporating ideas from our community, provides for large native trees to replace the eucalyptus, plus smaller trees that will be attractive to birds and screen the view of the DMV car enclosure, a much-needed additional picnic table, and new boulders to enhance the creekside area.
