*Due to the recent guidelines released by Governor Kate Brown for Washington County, the opening ceremony for Anna & Abby’s Yard has been postponed.*
In April 2020, Anna & Abby’s Yard broke ground and is the 11th playground project that Harper’s Playground has supported since the original opened at Arbor Lodge in November of 2012.
This inclusive playground will incorporate fairy houses, multiple tree decks, a “forest building area,” a Love Rock spring and a toadstool theater.
Anna & Abby’s Yard is a community project led by Anna and Abby’s parents Susan Dieter-Robinson and Tom Robinson who wanted to build a playground in their hometown of Forest Grove, Oregon in memory of their daughters. This park is a way to honor the girls; it will be a place for people to gather and celebrate love and joy.
“Our girls’ legacy is the love & joy that they continue to share here on earth—not the tragedy by which they went to Heaven. Thank you, Cody, and the team at Harper’s Playground, for helping us continue to celebrate Anna & Abby’s love & joy.”
