The greater Green Bay YMCA is giving local kids the chance to design their dream playground!
Not only here but the YMCA is teaming up with the Humana Foundation and Kaboom to build more than 50 playgrounds across the United States.
"Our playground is going to be for 5-12 year olds, but we felt it was really integral to have the kids perspective rather than the parents and adults kind of dictating what the kids want, because they know best what they're going to want in a playground. So we thought it was really important for them to be a really important part of that process," said Kathleen Mckee, the the youth development associate exectutive for the YMCA.
As a part of the project a community garden will be planted in Green Bay to encourage healthy eating.
