Playground donated at Jessica Ridgeway Memorial Park
(Apr 16, 2013)
The City of Westminster is donating current playground equipment from Jessica Ridgeway Memorial Park, formerly Chelsea Park, to Kids Around the World
City Parks crews and members of Kids Around the World worked in snowy conditions on April 16 to disassemble the playground equipment.
Kids Around the World takes playgrounds that are being replaced and refurbishes them, sends them overseas to countries where children are in need of play equipment and gets volunteers to install them.
Donating the playground will also prevent it from going to the landfill.
The park is in the process of being redesigned to honor the memory of Jessica Ridgeway.
For information about the redesign or to contribute to the fundraising efforts, visit the Westminster Legacy Foundation website at www.westminsterlegacyfoundation.org.
