playgroundThis week, more than 200 volunteers showed up to Ninth Street Park in San Bernardino to install a new playground.

The nonprofit group, KaBOOM led the project in the park after noticing the old playground had deteriorated.

Tony Munoz, one of the volunteers who installed the new playground, told The Sun newspaper: “I remember that big steel slide that was hotter than heck in the summer. It was a steel merry-go-round that was there. They did fix it up, but it sort of went to pot, you know. Now, all these guys working together, I think we’re making something better.”

According to the newspaper, the city of San Bernardino helped organize the event along with the Home of Neighborly Services and the BNSF Railway. The Dr. Pepper Snapple Group also contributed to the project.

This project helps achieve the Countywide Vision by improving the quality of life for residents and their children.
