Volunteers repair Playground of Dreams

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.—Saturday was the 9th year a group of volunteers worked to repair Tri-Cities largest playground.

About 50 people showed-up to repair the Playground of Dreams.  A representative with the City of Kennewick, Sue Beitlich, says the project takes about 75 people and that's work they cannot afford.  She also says the playground has become very important in the community, especially after it burned down a few years ago.

"In one day the community came, and we rebuilt it again. It's important.  It's one of the largest playgrounds we have in the tri-cities and we're very proud of it," Sue Beitlich, City of Kennewick.

Beiltlich also says she sees some of the same faces helping out every year.
