Playground built in just one day by volunteers in Albany

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. - More than 200 volunteers and Albany residents are joining forces today to build a new playground, using just one day, at the Macedonia Baptist Church.

The new playground will provide hundreds of children in Albany with a safe place to play.

Macedonia Baptist Church is located at 26 Wilson Avenue in Albany.

The project is part of 'Let's Play,' a community partnership led by Dr. Pepper Snapple Group to get kids and families active nationwide.

In addition to the community-built playground, the new play area will also include 'Imagination Playground in a Box,' a break-through playspace concept designed to encourage child-directed and unstructured free-play.

With reconfigurable loose parts, the 'Imagination Playground in a Box' allows children to constantly change their environment and design their own course of play.
