Thanks to a CFCC grant, a custom sail shade structure was successfully installed at the children’s playground at Tigertail Beach in Marco Island, making trips to the playground much more enjoyable in the hot Florida sun. The playground is open to all residents of Collier County, as well as to any visitor to Tigertail Beach.

The playground provides an ideal opportunity for children to master physical skills, such as learning to swing, balance and climb. Personal development may be gained through the enhancement of skills, such as playing, communicating, and cooperating with other children and adults in the playground. The addition of the shade structure provides a safer environment for children to play and enjoy the playground.
