Construction begins at site of Officer Caprio Playground Project

NOTTINGHAM, MD—Construction has officially begun at the future site of a playground that will be dedicated to the memory of a fallen police officer.

The Officer Caprio Playground Project this week announced that demolition and construction had begun on the grounds of Gunpowder Elementary School.

In June, officials announced that all remaining funds for the project had been secured, thanks to funding provided by Crossroads Reserve LLC/Perry Hall Station.

Officer Amy Caprio was run down in the line of duty in Nottingham in May 2018. The Officer Caprio Playground Project was announced in January 2020 to honor her memory.

Several fundraisers have been held over the past 18 months, including a bull roast in September 2020 that raised $16,000 for the project.
