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.
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.
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.

Design Day was held at Shaker Lane and Russel Street Elementary Schools in Littleton. The kids shared their ideas to inspire the new design of the Castle Playground. It was unveiled that night at the Design Celebration.
Thanks to State Rep. James Arciero, State Senator Jamie Eldridge and the Littleton Board of Selectmen, a $100,000 was allocated in the state budget for the Castle rebuild. It now has to be passed by Gov. Charlie Baker. Fingers and toes are crossed!
