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.
A recent KaBOOM project in Chicago brought the community together.
KaBOOM! has teamed with the Connecticut Community Foundation and the American Heart Association in Waterbury to provide new playground equipment for Waterbury’s Chase Park. KaBOOM! is a national nonprofit dedicated to saving play for America’s children. The entire playground will be built by hundreds of volunteers on June 23, 2012. After six hours of shoveling, hammering, painting and much more, Chase Park will be the home of a new, magical playground.
