Dedication of Shade Structure at Jewett Park Preschool Playground

We will hold off on the dedication for the shade structures at the Jewett Park Preschool Playground, but in the meantime, we hope that you are enjoying the benefits of shade provided by the new structures. We are truly grateful for the generous donation that allowed the park district to purchase the structures and want to thank Dr. Amy Brodsky for her continued work to improve sun protection safety. In 2012, Dr. Brodsky founded Pediatric Sun Protection Foundation, Inc. (PSPF), a philanthropic endeavor born out of her passion for skin cancer prevention and desire to educate others about effective sun protection for children. Photos below showcase the end result of the Shade Structure installation and the donation.

Work continues at the parks and playgrounds during the stay-at-home order. Shade structures are now in place at the Preschool Playground at Jewett Park. We thank Dr. Amy Brodsky and Family and the Pediatric Sun Protection Foundation for the generous donation to purchase these structures that are a welcome addition to this playground!

On behalf of the Deerfield Park Foundation, Jeff Nehila accepts a generous donation from Pediatric Sun Protection Foundation representatives. Donated funds will be used to purchase a shade structure for the Preschool Playground at Jewett Park and a shade umbrella at the Deerspring Pool!
