Sienna’s PlayGarden is a playground renovation project born out of immense love for Sienna Marie Palkovic who passed away unexpectedly in 2012. With their daughter as their inspiration, the Palkovic Family is spearheading this 

community project to revitalize Sienna’s favorite neighborhood playground at Rolling Hills Park for the children and families of the community. Initially built in the 1970s, this playground is in dire need of upgrades. With Rolling Hills Elementary School directly next door and many children living in the community, the playground is the neighborhood “hub”. The mission of Sienna's PlayGarden is to Design, Fund, and Rebuild the playground and beautify the park. For this community project, the goal is to raise approximately $200,000 for the new play equipment. Sienna’s PlayGarden has partnered with the City of San Diego to work toward the goal of a full playground renovation. Sienna's PlayGarden believes in the abundant benefits of outdoor play and hopes to create a beautiful Nature-Inspired play area to promote exercise, togetherness, and well-being!
