New playground on St. Vincent dePaul campus

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The vision of children was coming to life at St. Vincent de Paul today. Hundreds of volunteers from the non-profit charity, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group and KaBoom! were building a new playground at the campus.

The design was created by children.

More than 60 formerly homeless children who live on the St. Vincent de Paul campus and kids with the Future Family Success Center will get to enjoy the playground.

Brenna Hull of Kaboom! says, "There are proven cognitive, social, emotional, all sorts of benefits that come from having a playground, besides just the common sense thing that we all love to play, we all played as kids and it's important that the kids of this generation and kids no matter where they live get the same advantages we did."

Another play place will be going up in the Louisville area in the coming weeks.  Since 1996 -- KaBoom! has built more than 2200 play spaces around the country.
