More than 200 volunteers are expected at Glen Iris Elementary School on Friday to build a deluxe playground in one day.

A horizontal loop ladder, a 360-degree spiral slide and a spiral climber, which is like a rock climbing wall, will be among the stations that will make up the KaBoom! playground, said Mike Vietti, a KaBoom! spokesman.

KaBoom! is a national nonprofit organization that helps communities build colorful playgrounds across the country. The play spaces are innovative and are designed by children. [More]
