BY TEVIN STINSON
Last Saturday, more than 60 volunteers from various walks of life came together,
rolled up their sleeves, and worked hours to bring a new playground to the children in the
East Winston Community.
The playground, which stands in the previously vacant field near the 14th Street
Recreation Center, was made possible by the Rose of Sharon/Dreamland Neighborhood
and their partnership with the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, the City of Winston
Salem and "KaBoom!" a non-profit dedicated to bringing balanced and active play into
the daily lives of all kids. The new playground is different from most play areas you may
have seen built. Children in the East Winston community had the opportunity to design
every aspect of the playground from the equipment to the color scheme.
While lending a helping hand to put equipment together on "Playground Build Day,"
Council member and representative for the East Ward, Derwin Montgomery, said, "As a
city council member and a neighbor, I felt it was important to be here today.
We are happy we were able to partner with Kate B. Reynolds and Kaboom! to make
this happen," he said. "When we talk about our kids having a place to come that's recre
ational fiin and something engaging to do, this is very important."
Montgomery mentioned the city has plans to expand the play area in the near future
to include areas for older children.
