On a bright and early Monday morning, over 200 volunteers from Orange County came together to create a brand new playground in the City of La Habra. With the of help Disney and the nonprofit organization KaBOOM!, a safe area for play was created.

As the day began, Disney voluntEARs, City of La Habra volunteers and KaBOOM! members anxiously arrived and waited for the day to start. A live DJ was out playing a variety of high energy songs as people checked in. Each person checked in was given a bandanna and a pedometer to count their steps.

Mayor of La Habra, Tom Beamish,  gave some words of encouragement to the volunteers before the work began. “We appreciate KaBOOM! for coordinating these events and for all they do, and special thanks to Disney for its participation in this project at San Miguel De Allende Park.”

Also in attendance was Disneyland Ambassador Sachiko White, who gave a warm welcome to those that were ready to start off their day and she also noted that this is the seventh park to be built in Orange County.

Several safety instructions were given by the KaBOOM! members and the electric slide dance stretched the volunteers out, it was time to start.  After these important steps, it was time to split everyone into their groups. There were a variety of jobs such as mixing concrete, planting a garden, panting games of hopscotch, spreading mulch and more.

All the volunteers quickly sprang into action. The playground was completed in eight hours and ready to be a safe place for play. The playground was made through support from Disney as part of Magic of Healthy Living. 

This playground will now forever be cherished by children and families. Playgrounds by Disney and KaBOOM! include:
