Hundreds of volunteers rose bright and early last Saturday, May 12, to help build a new playground just blocks away from the Disneyland Resort – and it came together in just one day!
Partnering with the City of Anaheim, Anaheim Family YMCA, KaBOOM! and local community members, Disney VoluntEARS built a playground at Stoddard Park in Anaheim that will provide more than 1,000 children a safe place to play. Planning began in March when local children met with Disney and KaBOOM! to design their ideal playground. The children’s drawings were then used to create the playground’s final design.
Disney is a KaBOOM! National Partner, supporting its vision of a play space within walking distance of every child in America. Since 2011, Disney has pledged more than $3.5 million to help build playgrounds and learning gardens across the country with the participation of thousands of Disney VoluntEARS. By the end of the year, Disney will have helped KaBOOM! build nearly 30 playgrounds nationwide!
