Active 20-30 Sacramento No. 1 has a long history of helping to build child-friendly installations throughout the community, through financial contribution, manpower, or both. Our most recent project was a playground project at Johnson Park in Del Paso Heights.
Johnson Park Tot Lot
On Saturday, March 13, Active 20-30 Club No.1 ran a community build for the tot lot playground at Johnston Park in the Del Paso Heights Neighborhood of Sacramento. The old playground was burned to the ground by arsonists last year. When the Active 20-30 Club of Sacramento No.1 hosted the 20-30 national convention in Cabo last year, they collected “Pennies-a-day” funds from each club across the country. Those funds, over $8,000 in all, went towards the playground. 75 volunteers from Club No.1 and Club #1032, along with a group of local high school students, volunteered their time to build the playground.
Active 20-30 Sacramento No.1 has been a major contributor to Fairytale Town over the years.
Fairytale Town installations to which we’ve contributed in part or in full include:
- The Old Woman’s Shoe
- King Arthur’s Castle
- Mother Goose
- Sherwood Forest
- Mother Goose Stage

River Cats Independence Field
Active 20-30 Sacramento No.1 was a major contributor to the River Cats Independence Field (RCIF).
RCIF is a completely barrier free baseball field, where athletes with disabilities of all ages compete in team sports year round. The rubberized surface of the field allows players to independently negotiate the infield and outfield with ease.
Southside Park Accessible Playground
Active 20-30 Sacramento No.1 was a major sponsor of the Southside Park Accessible Playground. The playground is an integrated and intergenerational-use playground that is open to everyone, including children with disabilities, able-bodied children, parents, grandparents and caregivers.
