Laney's Playground

The Ladd Family recently lost their daughter Laney (6), a first grader in Mr. Keith's class at Chandler School. They thought naming the Chandler front playground after Laney would be a wonderful way to honor her. We and Chandler School wholeheartedly agree. We at DEPP are working tirelessly to support this effort but we need your help!


To break ground on Laney’s Playground in 2023, we need to raise $280k by Valentine’s Day ❤️💜 February 14th. We can then contract with our construction partner to build the playground before next winter. Reflecting Laney’s vibrant spirit, this will be an inspiring and inclusive place to play.


Can you help?


Please donate and share this message far and wide so we can build Laney’s Playground and give Duxbury a place where all the kids in town can come together to play and remember Lane!


💜💜💜 Every little bit helps, thank you!!

Who we are

DEPP is a group that began to help our schools with a much needed playground revitalization project. We came together to raise the financing to replace playgrounds that have reached the end of their lifespans and create safe, engaging and inclusive places to play.

We feel very lucky to be working on the Happiest Project in Town as we help Duxbury show some love to our playgrounds! If you see us around town please say hi!
