More than 200 volunteers from ForestersTM, the Wrigley Area Neighborhood Alliance, the City of Long Beach, organizers from KaBOOM! and residents of the local community will join forces on Saturday, Feb. 12 to build a new playground at 21st to Hill Mini Park. The new playground's design is based on drawings created by children who participated in a Design Day event in December. The playground build will also include a Foresters Family Fun Zone featuring arts & crafts, games and activities for families and children throughout the day.
