The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources joined volunteers from Cranberry Township in Butler County and local sponsors to build a new community playground at North Boundary Park earlier in October.

The local sponsors included Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield and Allegheny Health Network, Columbia Gas, FirstEnergy, and the Pennsylvania Municipal League -- along with organizers from KaBOOM!

Designed with input from neighborhood children, the new play space will include 11 different play activities, and is expected to attract more than 1,000 visitors per month.

“Whether swinging on new playground equipment or hiking on a state park or forest trail, active youngsters are healthy youngsters,” said DCNR Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn. “That’s why this department embraces this type of project. One that involves so many partners and volunteers, all drawn together to build a showplace recreation area for young people.”

The playground is the eighth built by the Pennsylvania Municipal League and KaBOOM!, with DCNR supporting seven of the projects.

Through this partnership, more children can have a joyful experience on a beautifully crafted playground.
