Bernon Heights playground to be built Saturday

WOONSOCKET - Parents, teachers, students and community members are being called to service this Saturday, when they will break ground on a new playground for Bernon Heights Elementary School.

Money for the structure has been secured through years of fundraising, and now, an all-volunteer staff will assemble the equipment in just one day, starting at 7 a.m. on Sept. 28.

A team from Childscapes, the vendor that designed playground, will be supervising the build. The playground design features slides, rock walls, monkey bars, bridges, decks and other features. Volunteers will be installing play equipment, retaining walls, and surface materials, as well as pouring concrete and other tasks.
