Leadership Los Alamos Class of 2014

With the grand opening of the new White Rock Library Friday, residents were introduced to the “Let’s Play, LA!” musical instrument park. 

The park is the result of efforts led by the Leadership Los Alamos class of 2014 in cooperation with Los Alamos County. In 2013-2014, several fundraising events were held, including a special dinner and silent auction, two bake sales, and the sale of memorial bricks, netting more than $10,000 in proceeds. 

The equipment installed in the park is engaging, sophisticated, therapeutic, forgiving, and FUN! The location of the interactive musical equipment will provide the perfect blend of physical activity, diversity, and musical influence for residents and visitors as well as provide sculptural art to the area.

Freenotes Harmony Park, the vendor for the equipment, is internationally recognized as the finest and most innovative musical ensembles ever made for a wide variety of outdoor settings. Freenotes instruments are:

  • Designed with acoustic precision and perfect tone
  • Appealing to all ages
  • Wheelchair accessible
  • Durable with low maintenance
  • Fun and engaging
  • Easy to use

The Leadership Los Alamos class of 2014 is very proud and thankful to have had support for the project from corporate sponsors, Zia Credit Union and Los Alamos National Bank, and partner, Los Alamos County.  

Leadership Los Alamos was founded in 2003 to identify current and emerging leaders in the Los Alamos area, enhance their leadership skills, and deepen their knowledge of the challenges and opportunities facing our community.
