PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Sandra Acosta Casillas said a new playground in Southeast Portland means the difference between worrying her kids will get hit by a car in the street and that playtime is only funtime.
The playground, designed in part with drawings from kids, has a slide, monkey bars and a swing set. It will help create healthy relationships that will last beyond their playground years.
“Kids need a place to exercise and they need a place to run around,” said Habitat for Humanity’s Jett Maertz. “This is going to be a great gathering spot for the children as well as the adults.”
The playground officially opens at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.
