The second of eight multi-generational playgrounds is finished in New Orleans as part of the Humana “Build a Legacy Tour” taking place this fall.
Humana volunteers, the Cleary Playground Athletic Association, Jefferson Parish Parks and Recreation and KaBOOM! rallied on Wednesday at Cleary Playground, 3700 Civic Street in Metairie, to help build a multi-generational play space for the local community.
More than 200 local volunteers of all ages, along with Humana and KaBOOM!, constructed play equipment and fitness stations in less than six hours. The Cleary Playground is the second of eight multigenerational playgrounds being built across the nation over eight weeks.
Jeff Fernandez, Louisiana senior products market president, helped kick the day off and worked with other local Humana associates throughout the day to make this community dream a reality.
Here are some more fun facts about the build:
- More than 200 volunteers from Humana and the community worked together to build this space
- More than 22,000 pounds of concrete were mixed by hand
- Volunteers will be adding 2,520 square feet of multi-generational playground space for people of all ages in Metairie.
