The Kade Damian Healing Hearts Park
The Playful Child has partnered with the City of Georgetown, TX, and the Parks and Recreation Department to design, build, and help maintain a public park and playground in honor of Kade Damian and all children who now live on in our hearts and memories. The Kade Damian Healing Hearts Park is a celebration of love, life, community, connection, and play!

In July 2019, the City of Georgetown provided 6 acres of land located at 1306 Country Club Drive for the Kade Damian Healing Hearts Park!
The 6 acres that have been dedicated to this project is raw land. This means that we have to design and raise the funds to install utilities, roads, trails, parking lot, landscaping, playground equipment, and more.
We have designed a space that allows everyone the opportunity to play, connect, relax and explore. Play is essential to healthy growth and development in children, but it also helps everyone stay young (at least at heart) and healthy.
The Kade Damian Healing Hearts Park encourages children of all abilities to explore the wonders of nature while enjoying the benefits of unstructured, free play! The space invites everyone to gather and connect through play. We plan to celebrate the love and life of all children at the park and include opportunities for families to honor children they now hold in their hearts.
Jeff Lindstrom and Meade Mitchell traveled to Georgetown, TX, on November 4th, 2019, to meet with the park design committee and get everything started. A children's design committee met in October 2019 to contribute ideas and The Playful Child conducted an online survey to solicit community input. On December 20, 2019, the park design committee met to review the final edits to the conceptual design. We are very excited about what has been created and are even more excited to see the plans become a reality!
The cost of phase 1 construction is $2 million dollars. With your support we can achieve this goal!
At the start of 2021, The Playful Child welcomed Covey Landscape Architects to our park planning team. The Covey team has worked with the Park Development Committee, Playful Child board, and Georgetown Parks & Recreation Department to create phase 1 construction plans for The Kade Damian Healing Hearts Park.
At the start of 2022, The Playful Child started working to develop a capital campaign to raise the remaining funds needed to complete The Kade Damian Healing Hearts Park. Ground breaking is dependent on raising the funds needed for construction. Now is the perfect time to join The Playful Child on this journey and help create a community treasure which will give back to the Georgetown and Central Texas residents for years to come!
