June 22, 2015 (El Cajon) -- The new KaBOOM playground at Bill Beck Park in El Cajon is complete—thanks to about 200 volunteers who completed the customized playground in just five and a half hours. As an added bonus, the City also installed a new adult outdoor fitness located next to the playground.
The big build took place Saturday, June 20, at Bill Beck Park located at 543 N. Pierce Street.
Construction began at 8:30 a.m. with a ribbon cutting held at 2:15 p.m. The playground will be ready for use in about a week, on Friday June 26.
Monica Zech, public information officer for the City of El Cajon, says, “A big thank you to funding partners include the City of El Cajon, Foresters, Stoney’s Kids, the El Cajon Kiwanis Club and KaBOOM! “
This is El Cajon’s third KaBOOM playground in three years.
