Krumm Park playground build makes an impact

Krumm Park, located near Fifth Avenue on the east side of Columbus, has long been a gathering place for local youth. In 2009, the park ran into trouble.

Due to budget cuts, the City of Columbus removed funding for the park and its recreation center and the future was cloudy at best. It did not take long for the Blue Jackets Foundation to step up and raise funds to build an outdoor street hockey rink, which is now one of the centerpieces of Krumm Park.


On July 25, the rebuilding of Krumm Park took another step forward. The Blue Jackets Foundation, in partnership with volunteers from the organization’s front office staff, coaches, current and former players, local youth and amateur hockey organizations and members of the community, joined for a new playground build at the park.

The design, engineered by Playworld Systems, is the first of its kind: a hockey-themed Blue Jackets playground built on two adjoining sites featuring giant slides, swings, a dedicated play area for children ages 2-5, and more.

BlueJackets.com was on hand and taking part in the build, but we did set aside some time to provide you a very cool time lapse of the Krumm Park project and also a photo gallery from the day.
