A large playground is coming to Bryte Park thanks to a partnership reached with the City of West Sacramento and the Disneyland Resort. The City Council approved the project in a unanimous vote last night.
Construction is scheduled for Sunday, May 31, 2015 when 400 community volunteers will build the project in just one day.
Disney has worked with KaBOOM! — a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing balanced and active play into the daily lives of kids — to build more than 50 playgrounds across the country throughout the past several years.
“Thanks to the generous support from Disney, the new playground will be enjoyed by new families that have just moved to the city, as well as families that have been here for generations,” said West Sacramento Mayor Christopher Cabaldon. “We will continue to develop West Sacramento into one of the most family-friendly cities in the region.”
Bryte Park is located at 425 Todhunter Ave. The playground site will be built on the southeast corner, along Carrie Street. The existing park includes softball and hardball diamonds, soccer fields, full court basketball, a picnic area, fitness course, walking paths, and a running track.
Families, service groups and community organizations are encouraged to participate in the playground construction day, May 31. The Yolo County Children’s Alliance is coordinating volunteer sign-ups. Must be 16 or older. Details on how you can participate will be made available shortly.
