Rain couldn’t keep away 373 volunteers from building a playground in one day! The Enterprise Center CDC helped organize this effort with the Walnut Hill community. The Philadelphia City Paper has great article about the event and all of the organizations that helped. Photos of the build can be found here.

The playground is not open to the public yet, but it will open as soon as the rubber safety surfacing is installed. The SCI-West Community Blog will check back in with The Enterprise Center once the slides and swings are open!
