CASTRO VALLEY — Jonathan Martin previously described his school playground at Strobridge Elementary School as "not fun at all."
And who can blame the sixth-grader. The isolated area featured just a few basketball courts and a deteriorating playground that was installed more than 30 years ago.
But not anymore.
Nearly 200 volunteers — including some from Home Depot and national nonprofit KaBOOM! as well as parents and other area community members — worked on rebuilding a new playground this past week for Strobridge students.
The effort is part of a program sponsored by Home Depot to construct new playgrounds and refurbish community centers in Hispanic communities. Alberto Garcia Aspe, a retired soccer player from the Mexican National Team, also was on hand to help, and signed autographs for students.
