Sue Sweeting and Play Space site

St. Mary of the Hills Episcopal Church member Sue Sweeting is co-chair of the fundraising committee for Play Space. Here she points to the area where it will be located on the southern edge of the front lawn.

BLOWING ROCK — A new children’s playground with a mission is coming to Blowing Rock. 

“This project started over three years ago when we started our discernment for a new priest,” recalled Sue Sweeting, a co-chair of the St. Mary of the Hills Episcopal Church ‘Play Space’ project. “One of the church leadership’s goals is to attract younger families. We have our new priest, Dr. Andrew Hege, but COVID-19 delayed the development of our Play Space project, as it did with a lot of things, because it shut our Christian education program down.”
