KaBOOM! Playground in East Waco.

We are excited to say that the Waco community has been selected to have a KaBOOM! playground constructed in the East Waco neighborhood. KaBOOM! is a national organization whose mission is to have a playground in the reach of all children in the surrounding neighborhoods. NeighborWorks Waco made the application and Living Word Church of God in Christ has provided the property for the playground to be constructed.

Prep Date:  Wednesday, March 10.  8:00am – 3:00pm.

Build Date: Friday, March 12.  8:00am – 3:00pm.  Ribbon-cutting at 2:30pm.

Build Site Address: Living Word Church of God in Christ
1016 East Waco Drive, Waco, TX 76704

KaBOOM! is a national non-profit organization that envisions a great place to play within walking distance of every child in America. Since 1996, KaBOOM! has used its innovative community-build model to bring together business and community interests to construct more than 1,700 new playgrounds, skate parks, sports fields and ice rinks across North America.

Our KaBOOM! playground build begins early in the morning with volunteers arriving at an empty site. Within hours, KaBOOM! has led volunteers in transforming the space to a vibrant neighborhood-gathering place – all in less than eight hours. It is an old-fashioned barn raising-with an urban twist!

Come witness the transformation for yourself.
