One of our partner organizations, Valley Settlement, is leading the effort to create a new, community-designed and community-built playground in El Jebel, sponsored by The Colorado Health Foundation. Approximately 250 volunteers are needed on Saturday, August 18th, to build the playground, serve food, and keep kids entertained. Volunteers must be 18 years or older to participate in the build and there will be activities for kids under 18.

To participate, please reach out to or call 970-963-0851. For more information click here (English) and here (Spanish). The previous neighborhood playground was lost to CDOT construction in 2017.
