Angel Park began from an idea that came to Kelli and Andy Szczybor after the loss of their baby boy, Ryan. From a sad origin, a bright and life affirming idea emerged – to build a place for laughter, activity and fun, for families and friends throughout the surrounding neighborhoods.
Kelly Szczybor is the niece of our classmate Brenda Paulshock.
The all-access playground was built in Perry Hall on 2.5 acres of land on Honeygo Boulevard south of the Perry Hall Library. The area will also include a public amphitheater.
The park is a memorial to lost loved ones. Plans include a memorial wall and opportunities for individuals and businesses to sponsor playground equipment in honor of those they have lost.
From design to construction the park is entirely community-driven. And, several of our classmates donated many hours to bringing the park to life; Brenda Paulshock, Vince Pecora and Sue Trinko Gerdom.
The Perry Hall High School Class of 1967 donated $100 for a brick placed on the memorial wall to support the community and Angel Park.
