New Playground at Herman Sanchez Community Center
For a long time, the only playground at the community center was geared toward 2-5 year old kids. So when older children wanted to play, the center had to walk the kids to a school a few blocks away and use their playground.
When a community member brought this to Councilor Benton's attention, he took action. Working with Exerplay, Councilor Benton & Family and Community Services committed the $110,000 for the playground and $40,000 for the landscaping.
- Approval for the funds was given on May 22, 2014.
- Construction began on September 22, 2014
- Playground was completed on November 24, 2014.
- Children had their first opportunity to play on the playground on December 5, 2014.
