Play Conejo events keep parks beautiful

On Sat., May 6, Play Conejo’s third annual “Prom . . . Again” fundraiser took place at the Thousand Oaks Teen Center.

The goal was to raise the money needed to complete the third and final phase of the Dreamcatcher Playground at Old Meadows Park in Thousand Oaks.

The Dreamcatcher Playground is a beautiful playground designed to be inclusive of all children, including those with special needs.

Play Conejo, for those not familiar with it yet, is a nonprofit created by the Conejo Recreation and Park District in 2012 to support our public parks and recreation programs.

As new residential development in the Conejo Valley slows, so do the funds available for park improvements. If we as residents of the Conejo Valley want to keep our parks and playgrounds as beautiful as they are today, we are going to have to start contributing to that effort ourselves.

I am so proud to be involved in Play Conejo and give back to the community that helped raise me and is now helping me raise my children. What stood out to me the most at “Prom . . . Again” this year was how relaxed, happy and kind all the guests were. It really felt like a big family.

Thank you to all the sponsors, guests and planners who helped make “Prom . . . Again” such a success.
