Local kids draw dream playground, volunteers help to build that new playground in Hartford


Hartford‘s Charter Oak Landing will be getting a new playground with some help from volunteers. 

200 volunteers are getting together on Friday to build a new playground at Charter Oak Landing in Hartford.

They will be transforming an empty site into a kid designed area over the course of six hours. Back in January, kids from the surronding community came together and drew their dream playground.

Those drawings were used as a template for the playground that will be built on Friday. 

Volunteers will get to work starting at 8:30 a.m.
