MENANDS, N.Y. -- More 30 volunteers worked together to build a brand new playground for students at a Menands school.
Teaching staff, administrators and members of the Saint Rose baseball team worked together for the project.
A group of administrators formed the playground committee three years ago as a way to get better playgrounds for the students. After building the first playground a few years ago, they put together this "Community Build" to get new equipment for even more students.
"We've got some swings there, some nice new swings that no one's ever going to have to worry about getting splinters on or we don't have to worry about bees coming and flying out of things. It's just going to be a really nice, fresh, new facility for the kids to use and I think for them to have a kick ball field to play on instead of having to play on our tennis courts, I think they're just going to love that. I think it's going to be great," said Menands science teacher Lorenz Herrmann.
The students will be able to use the new playground by next week.
