Sarasota, FL—Families in the Sarasota-Bradenton Community have a new playground to enjoy now that the Ronald A. Balducci Playground and Event Garden at Nathan Benderson Park has officially opened. Located on the northern end of the park, the playground is the newest addition to the Sarasota County park, which already offers so much to residents.
Named in memory of Ronald A. Balducci, the playground will be a fun gathering place for parents, grandparents, children, grandchildren, extended families, and friends. It will be open daily during regular park hours and the pavilion will soon be available to rent for birthday parties and special events.
“The addition of the Ronald A. Balducci Playground and Event Garden adds one more element to the extraordinary facilities that make up Nathan Benderson Park”, said Robert J. Sullivan, president and CEO of SANCA, the non-profit that manages NBP. “Staff is already developing programming ideas incorporating the playground and event garden for this coming year.”
