News ImageSan Bernardino Kids Imagine Bright Futures with More Play
Children from San Bernardino will put crayons to paper and draw their dream playground, which will ultimately become a reality with the help of the City of San Bernardino (@sbcitygov), The Home of Neighborly Service, Dr Pepper Snapple Group (@drpeppersnapple) and organizers from national non-profit KaBOOM! (@kaboom). Elements from their drawings will be incorporated into the design of the playground that will be built on Wednesday, October 15 at 1299 W. Union Street in San Bernardino. Design Day is also the first meeting for the playground committee that will determine how best to create and catalyze the new playspace so that the kids can get the balanced and active play they need to thrive.

Old Grove Orange will bring fresh and local produce, from 11:30AM-1:30PM. Participating families and individuals have pre-paid for a 3 month season of locally grown fruits and vegetables called a“Farmshare.” All residents and workers in the City are encouraged to sign upfor a Farmshare (registration packet accessible here).
