We’re teaming up with long-time partner KaBOOM! as well as with Revere Neighborhood Developers and the City of Revere to build our 11th playground this Saturday, Oct. 29 at Costa Park in Revere, Massachusetts. The playground build begins with a kickoff ceremony at 8:30 a.m. ET and the ribbon-cutting ceremony will be at 2:30 p.m.
Costa Park, the children’s playground on Shirley Avenue just a few blocks from the Revere Beach T stop, is in need of revitalization. Recognizing this need, we’re partnering with KaBOOM!, a national non-profit organization dedicated to saving play, and local residents to make the park a place where families, daycares, and schools can feel proud to bring their children to play. When complete, the new playground will provide a safe play space for 500 children. Crewmembers from our Boston station will volunteer their efforts to help build a playground in just one day’s time.
The playground will be the 11th built by us and KaBOOM! in an effort to fight the play deficit and save play. We’ve also helped build playgrounds in Washington D.C., Salt Lake City, Utah, Kissimmee and Orlando, Florida, and Long Island City, New York, among other cities.
