On Wednesday, nearly 50 children from the Chester community took a shot at designing their dream playgrounds. The event, hosted by the Philadelphia Union Foundation, KaBOOM!, Chester Upland School District, and Chester City United took place at Science & Discovery High School and lasted well into the evening.
Those joining the participants included Union GK Chase Harrison, Philadelphia Union front office staff, and local community volunteers. Representatives from MLS W.O.R.K.S. were also on hand.
Many of the design day visions will come to life on July 24, when the Philadelphia Union Foundation and its partners work with KaBOOM! to bring a new playground to Chester as part of activities surrounding the 2012 MLS All-Star Game at PPL Park.
