The new playground at the Civic Center will be called the Campbell Community Playground.

Traverse City residents Meridith and Dan Falconer pledged $80,000 to the playground project. In return for the donations, the couple requested naming rights for the playground.

The play structure's new name - "Campbell Community Playground" - is in memory of Bruce Campbell Falconer, Dan Falconer's father and a Traverse City community leader who passed away in 2015.

"Our community owes a debt of gratitude to the Falconers and to the may other local and even out-of-town families, individuals, couples, organizations, and businesses that donated to the Get Out and Play Project. It was an outpouring I was proud to witness, and one that will bring a tremendous asset to our community," said Kristine Erickson, Grand Traverse County Parks and Recreation Director.
