Today in Play: A neighborhood in Raleigh is reborn

Circle paintingHello and welcome to Today in Play! Our top story today...an inspirational story from Raleigh, N.C.

"A decade ago, the old playground at the city's park on Lane Street was torn down. Over time, where a wooden playset once sat nestled among the trees became an occasional hangout for prostitutes and drug addicts. But...now, with a the help of dozens of community volunteers and a national nonprofit, Lane Street will get a new playground this fall."

You can read more about how this neighborhood has turned around on the Raleigh News & Observer website.
