SALINA, Kansas – Hundreds of volunteers came together this weekend to build a playground that gives every kid a chance to play.

More than 500 volunteers worked to build an all-access playground at Coronado Elementary School.

Noon Network AMBUCS, which works with people with disabilities, partnered with Salina AM AMBUCS to raise $394,000 for the project.

those who helped in the project say it was fulfilling to do something that will benefit the community

“This is what it’s all about, having a community come together, having the kids out here seeing this, everybody coming together to build something so special,” said Bill Short, Design/Sales Child’s Play Inc.

Designers from Child’s Play Inc. will return to lay down turf around the playground in two to three weeks.

The ground opening of the new playground is set for sometime this September.
