Making A Difference: Volunteers Build A New Playground In Woodhill

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky (LEX 18) Thanks to a group of volunteers and the generosity of the community, a brand new playground is now up and ready for kids in one Lexington neighborhood.

A group of volunteers from Lexington’s Southland Christian Church noticed that the old playground in the Woodhill neighborhood was falling apart and needed to come down.

They reached out to the Lexington community and members of the community donated the needed $10,000 to build a new playground in just 30 days.

They will soon add a zipline and a soccer field to the Woodhill Playground.

“To see them enjoy this, it's incredible,” said volunteer Janelle Earley.

“I think more than just having something to play on, it lets them know that somebody loves them,” said volunteer Misty Simms.

They’ve also added a number of benches and picnic tables at the playground so parents from the community can come out and watch their children play.
