Would you like to help build a new playground inside one of Detroit’s most historic parks? If so, the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation and KaBOOM! could use your help.
Hundreds of volunteers are needed to assemble the latest Built to Play-enabled project within Southeast Michigan, set for space inside Palmer Park (910 Merrill Plaisance St., Detroit, MI 48203), and scheduled for construction on August 10 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
For this effort—planned within the 296-acre city park expanse first established in 1895, and named after former U.S. Senator Thomas Witherall Palmer—workers of all skill levels will help to build an ambitious play space that hopes to add to the park’s diversity and ongoing beautification.
All volunteers (required to be 18 years of age or older) will receive a T-shirt to wear during the day’s work, and will have access to gloves and other safety materials, as needed. Breakfast, lunch and water will also be provided to all volunteers.
