Like a modern-day barn-raising, the Libbey Park Playground Project will rely on everyone and everything to be in the right place at the right time. Starting Oct. 6, the Ojai community will find out if it's up to the challenge.
Building a new playground with community volunteers requires a lot of advanced coordination and working out of the logistics, city officials said. The playground is a result of an innovative community design-and-build approach, under the guidance of Play By Design, the city's consultant hired to guide the process. But it's the community that is the driving force behind the effort.
