Disney VoluntEARS from the Walt Disney World Resort recently joined forces with a Central Florida community to create the 75th nationwide KaBOOM! playground – giving hundreds of local children and their families a safe play environment that cultivates healthy lifestyles and inspiration.
The latest KaBOOM! playground is in the residential complex of Golden Oaks in Winter Park, Florida and it has everything you’d expect in a dream playground, including new slides, swings, rock walls, bike racks and more.
The playground may have taken less than six hours to create but it’s a project that has been in the works for months. In January, a group from the Winter Park complex initially gathered and helped design the space. Then, Disney VoluntEARS brought the vision to life, transforming an empty lot into a vibrant family gathering area. It’s the 11th Disney-funded KaBOOM! Playground in Central Florida.
Disney’s ongoing collaboration with KaBOOM! is part of The Walt Disney Company Healthy Living Commitment to create healthier generations by making healthy living fun and simple in the communities where Disney Cast Members live, work and play.
And as many of you know, being a good corporate citizen is a time-honored Disney tradition. Through contributions, collaborations with local organizations, in-kind gifts and volunteering, Disney helps to brighten the lives of kids and families in need and strengthen communities around the world.
