Why is Jground 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 Jground membership or synagogue affiliation required?
Jground 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.

How much does construction cost?
After working extensively with multiple playground equipment companies, GameTime quoted the least expensive rate—for the most equipment. In the playground building industry, this rate is truly a catch. The playground and swing area, including safety mulch, and install, costs $158,000. Picnic tables and park benches raises the cost to $168,000. 

What are some design features I can look forward to?

The triangular-shaped playscape and swingset area (approx 85’x50’ wide) was custom designed, after months of research and effort, to embrace different types of play:

• 4 slides, including a toddler roller slide and 2 8ft. swerve slides
• Trinet Powerscape
• Suspension Bridge
• Diamond Web Climber
• 4.5 ft. Rock Climber
• 8 ft. Leaning Wall Climber
• Plank, Erratic, and Banister Rail Climbers
• Loop Monkey Bars
• Flower Talktubes
• Spinning Leaf Seats
• Bongos
• Fun Seats beneath elevated platforms
• Six swings, including 1 belted swing and 1 tot swing

Are there any grants available?
We applied and were awarded a $50,000 “Texas Recreation and Parks Grant” from GameTime, the playground equipment company. This is further reason to take advantage of this opportunity— a $168,000 playground for just $118,000.

How will the funds be raised?
It’s going to take a village. We will 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.
