More than 200 volunteers from the Connecticut Community Foundation, the American Heart Association, the City of Waterbury, organizers from KaBOOM! and residents of the local community joined forces to build a new playground in one day at Chase Park. The new playground’s design is based on drawings created by children who participated in a Design Day event in April. It will provide more than 2,500 children in the Waterbury community with a safe place to play. The project is one of more than 150 playground builds KaBOOM! will lead across the country in 2012 in an effort to provide a great place to play within walking distance of every child in America.

The actual design of the Chase Park playground will be decided by public input - especially from the children who will use it. This is the end result from another community.
KaBOOM!, Inc. has teamed with the American Heart Association and the Connecticut Community Foundation in Waterbury to provide new playground equipment for Waterbury’s Chase Park. KaBOOM! is a national non-profit dedicated to saving play for America’s children. The organization’s mission is to create great playscapes through the participation and leadership of communities.

After listening to dozens of members of Waterbury's black community speak out in support of Dr. Portia Bonner, a black woman who was born and raised in Waterbury, the Board of Education voted 7-3 to hire Dr. Kathleen Ouellette as the new Superintendent of Schools in Waterbury. The board members who voted for Ouellette cited her strong track record of experience as the deciding factor.
