Chief Joseph Park Playground Renovation


Wheatland County MSU Extension worked closely with the City of Harlowton and the Harlowton Mom's Group to renovate the playground at Chief Joseph Park.

The Mom's Group identified that the playground was unsafe and didn't meet the needs of young families in Wheatland County. After extensive planning and finalizing a design, Wheatland County MSU Extension assisted in writing and has received $135,000 in grant funds for the project and has helped coordinate fundraising of over $45,000 in donations, in-kind donations, and volunteer hours.

This community project has empowered young adults to take a leadership role in our community and has brought groups from throughout the community together. Working cooperatively, we have been able to make a significant change in the community and create a destination playground. The new equipment is a highlight in our park for the community and a draw for visitors.
