Sunset Beach Playground


The total cost to fully develop this new amenity was $130,000. Many donations large and small, plus four fundraising events conducted by Friends of Lake Panorama, raised $80,000 to provide the base support for this new playground. The Lake Panorama Association provided an additional $50,000. The LPA also provided technical and construction assistance.

The playground is geared to ages 5 through 12, and has a play capacity of 165. The main play structure includes multiple slides, bridges and places to climb. Several smaller play structures surround the main area, including a modern take on old-fashioned merry-go-rounds and teeter-totters.


Many donations large and small, plus many people sharing their time and talent, helped Friends of Lake Panorama reach its fundraising goal for the playground. Only donors of $500 or more are recognized here, but thanks to everyone who played a role in making this project a reality.
