Jean Sweeney Open Space Park is the only open space park of its kind in the area and it will fill a need for outdoor recreational space in an underserved area of  Alameda.  Kiwanis have been serving the children and community of Alameda since 1923 and the Jean Sweeney Park has a close tie to Alameda Kiwanis. Jim Sweeney is a member of our service club and his wife Jean found the documents that allowed the city of Alameda to purchase over 20 acres of land at 1924 prices. Now we want to help build a playground at the East End of the Jean Sweeney Open Space Park but we need your help.

Be a part of the excitement. Give what you can. We will keep you updated and when the time comes the JSOSP Organization will have plenty of volunteer opportunities  in the park.

We need your donations by February, 2017. There are 15,000 kids in the city that need outdoor play space that is safe, durable and fun.

Thank you to all of the supporters of the Playground at the Jean Sweeney Park. We are inching to our goal through donations to the Kiwanis foundation directly and through gofundme. Our park will give families and children safe, organized play space for many years. All of us will have beautiful trails to bike and walk. The open space and picnic areas are desired in every community and we are fortunate to have them. Thank you. Please share our gofundme with your friends.
