NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – More than 150 volunteers built a new playground for kids in a Nashville neighborhood.

They gathered at the Harvest Hands Community Development in the Napier neighborhood at 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning, and the project was completed by the afternoon.

Harvest Hands Community Development partnered with KaBOOM! to build the playground, which was designed by local kids.

Mayor Barry, Councilman Freddie O’Connell, and Councilman Colby Sledge attended Saturday’s event.

Barry, who cut the ribbon, said this was a valuable addition to the area.

“What they have got now is a place to come and play when they are outside playing,” she said. “That means they are not inside watching TV or playing video games. It makes them healthier in Nashville.”

The new play area will be part of a community center that’s also planned for the neighborhood.
