CHINA SPRING (October 23, 2012)—China Spring has a new playground, thanks to a $20,000 grant and the help of community volunteers.
Dr Pepper Snapple Group and national nonprofit KaBOOM! awarded China Spring a $20,000 Let’s Play Construction Grant in May for being selected as a 2012 Playful City USA community.
The new community playground, China Spring Intermediate Community Park, was built on Flat Rock Road, next to China Spring Intermediate School.
As part of Let’s Play, Dr Pepper Snapple Group made a $15 million three-year commitment to the nonprofit to help provide a playground within walking distance of every child.
Two thousand playgrounds in need of care will be fixed up by the end of 2013 benefitting an estimated 5 million children across the nation.
Friday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony is open to the public and will begin at 1:45 p.m.
