Before the sun went down on March 4, a new playground at Anaheim’s Schweitzer Park was fully assembled in one day with the help of 200 volunteers from the City of Anaheim, Anaheim Family YMCA, Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney Imagineering, KaBOOM!, and the community. The new playground, which will provide more than 2,000 children a safe place to play, is one of dozens made possible nationwide with support from Disney to inspire kids to lead healthier lifestyles.
“Every child deserves to have a great place to play and we’re thrilled to continue our work with Disney in striving toward that goal,” said Darell Hammond, KaBOOM! founder & CEO. “Thanks to the efforts from Disney, KaBOOM!, the City of Anaheim and the Anaheim Family YMCA, we moved one step closer to the KaBOOM! vision of a great place to play within walking distance of every child in America.”
