HOWARD -- A new, one-of-a-kind playground is finished today at the West-side YMCA.
The new area was built in only six hours.
The playground is funded by the Humana Foundation, but designs were created from personal drawings and input from community members.
Before today, the YMCA did not have anywhere for kids to play outside.
"It’s about more than just a playground,” said Joshua Carlson, Project Manager. “It's about creating a safe space for kids to play, and for communities to come together, and grow, and build, and do even more than they imagined."
Volunteers built the playground and finished off the day with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
