Littleton Children's Fund

Castle Playground was built by many members of the Littleton community in 1991. They created a non-profit group, The Littleton Children's Fund (LCF), to maintain the playground. In 2014 the town took over maintenance, but LCF continues to support the playground.

Castle's Fate

Littleton's Castle in the Trees playground was built by the community in 1991, and has long outlived its projected lifespan, thanks to maintenance by Littleton Children's Fund and others. However, it is nearing a point where maintenance and repair won't be able to keep it safe. Before this happens, the Rebuild Castle Committee has pledged to raise funds and rebuild Castle in the Trees, so that it won't be lost forever when that time comes. The new Castle has a projected build date of late summer 2016.  

Aidan's Playground is located at Castle in the Trees Playground. It was built in November, 2013 in memory of 10 month old Littleton resident Aidan Mallio who died in a drowning accident in July 2012.. The playground is for ages 2-5.
