Build Your Playground and Your Community Spirit
Playgrounds are natural gathering places where local children and families from all walks of life can play and socialize together with a shared sense of community. When developing your playground, you can rally that community spirit and enthusiasm to recruit local volunteers to join you in a Community Build project.
