SLIDESHOW: Volunteers Build a Playground in Six Hours

SANTA ROSA—Nearly 300 volunteers gathered at Roseland Elementary School on Saturday (Dec. 3) to build a playground in six hours.

The construction was part of a partnership with PG&E and Kaboom!, a non-profit that builds playgrounds around the country. The utility is donating about $200,000, the majority of the cost to build playgrounds over consecutive weekends this month in Santa Rosa, Oceano in San Luis Obispo County (Dec. 10) and in Fresno (Dec. 17).

In Santa Rosa, the volunteer work resulted in:

  • A main playground, including a 9-foot slide, six swings and an 8-foot climbing wall
  • Four benches
  • Four arbors
  • Two tree benches
  • One double shade structure with lattice
  • Three composting bins
  • Six garden beds rehabilitated
