The Tustin Youth and Family Center Playground in California is being replaced. The city had budgeted $88,000 for the equipment and installation. The playground will be demolished and the new playground will have rubber playground surfacing instead of sand. This will go a long way to prevent injuries and make an attractive playground that is easy to maintain for years to come.
And in Texas students pulled together to build a new playground after vandals destroyed their playground by setting it on fire. Foster Elementary School students sold lemonade, held bake sales and car washes to raise funds for the new playground. A local business kicked in to help too.
The playground was made for students of all abilities including children in wheelchairs. The community pitched in to help build the playground.
Congratulations to these organizations for their work and their investment in their community!
