Coalition Builds New Playground in One Day for Chicora-Cherokee Community
Select Health of South Carolina and AmeriHealth Caritas Partnership today led more than 75 volunteers as they built a new playground adjacent to the Chicora Place Community Garden in North Charleston, providing a safe and fun space for children to play.
The 2,300-square-foot playground is located at 3107 North Carolina Avenue, and while there will be some parking available, it is intended to serve the immediate area with most visitors walking there. Construction started by 8:30 a.m. and finished this afternoon with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and musical performance by local children. A neighborhood-organized community celebration featuring a potluck dinner and outdoor movie concluded the day’s activities.
