On June 25th, Sullivan Tire teamed with Yokohama, KaBOOM!, the Town of Rockland, and Play Areas for Rockland Kids (P.A.R.K.) to build a brand new playground at Hartsuff Park in a single day for the children and families of Rockland, Mass. and other surrounding communities.
The planning for this playground build began late last year during our 60th Anniversary. When it came to choosing the town to have the playground build, Rockland was an easy decision for us to make. Sullivan Tire was founded in Rockland by Bob “The Chef” Sullivan, and it’s where our first store was and still is located. This was a great way to thank the town that has allowed us to be a part of the community for 60 years.
A “Design Day” was held back in April with the Rockland community, Yokohama, KaBOOM!, and Sullivan Tire to begin the process of creating an ideal playground.
This vision came together due to a wonderful cast of about 287 smiling volunteers. It was a very busy day filled with mixing and pouring concrete, hauling mulch, painting park benches, and assembling the actual playground structures.
The Hartsuff Park playground is now open to the public for all to enjoy.
Thank you to all the volunteers, Yokohama, KaBOOM!, the town of Rockland, P.A.R.K., and everyone who lent a hand in creating this wonderful new space for children and families of all abilities to enjoy!
