Fun For All Ages

A long-term partner of the Florahome Parks and Recreation Association, Grandin Sand Plant donated $16,000 toward the construction of a new playground at Palmetto Park.

The playground is located adjacent to the Florahome Trailhead for the Palatka-to-Lake Butler State Trail, roughly six miles east of the sand plant. The trail runs north of the plant’s entrance.

“We are so grateful to Vulcan Materials for partnering with us to expand our playground,” said Meri-lin Piantanida, President of the Florahome Parks and Recreation Association. “The children of our community will enjoy this gift for many years to come.”

“It has been incredibly rewarding to have a small part in helping the Florahome Parks & Recreation Association make the playground expansion become a reality,” said Traci Johns, Environmental Specialist for Vulcan Materials. “As corporate neighbors, Vulcan looks forward to future opportunities to be involved with the community.”
