Why is this playground needed?
A Jewish child in San Antonio deserves to experience the full richness of having lots of close Jewish friends from across the community—because we are one family. Whether you want a place to meet up with friends, hang out after soccer, celebrate a birthday party, go before or after dinner, spend a lazy Sunday, or make new friends, Jground is your place. Shaded place!

Is membership or synagogue affiliation required?
The IBC Bank Jewish Children's Playground is a park where children from throughout the Jewish community are welcome. You don’t need a membership. You already belong. This is your playground, for you and by you. Everyone should feel that this is their park.

Why was KOMPAN company selected?
The project took over a year of careful planning, fundraising, and choosing a company. We finally settled on KOMPAN, an industry respected company whose USA office happens to be in Austin. Their impressive array of playground designs, their team's attentiveness to communication and understanding of the plaground vision, coupled with a significant grant they generously made, made choosing them the best choice.

Headquartered in Denmark, KOMPAN and its Institue of Play researches, tests and hand-crafts playgroungs that are a "motivator for children to play, stay and come back again and again," and designs eye-catching, elegant, and natural and playgrounds that "inspire children of all abilities to play and develop physically, social-emotionally and cognitive-creatively," from Robinia wood that is strong, durable, rot resistant and sourced sustainably.

How much has been raised? 
The total cost of the playground is $130,000, with close to 75% already raised. Many generous families have contributed to make this playground a reality. We need all families to step up and give generously—for our children’s sake. Let’s invest in their "now,” not just their future. Let’s give them the eternal gift of love and friendship, and the priceless sense that they truly belong to something special. Corporate sponsorships are also a great way for your business to give back to the community.

We look forward to celebrating together with a community grand opening in the near future and recognize the donors at the event.
