McKeithen Park Playground Build

On Friday, August 28th, over 200 volunteers worked together for over 6 hours to rebuild the playground at McKeithen Park off of Lawn Avenue. The project, sponsored by MetLife and managed by KaBoom!, envolved months of planning and coordination to bring the day together. Charter Oak Communities, the City of Stamford, KaBoom and the East Side Partnership collaborated together to coordinate donations, volunteers, fundraising and many other efforts for the park. The day included a DJ, breakfast and lunch for the volunteers, touch-a-truck activities for the children including the fire department and rescue squad and many other activities. At the end of the build day, the children will presented with bicycles and helmets as well. The City of Stamford is continuing to work on the landscaping for the park as well as the installation of a basketball game. This is a great achievement and new amenity for the East Side of Stamford. We would like to thank all the volunteers and businesses in the area, who donated their time and goods to this wonderful project. If you spent the day with us, please share your photos with us so we can post on our website.
