The Deschutes Children’s Foundation has finished construction on a new playground in Redmond.
It’s at the Becky Johnson Community Center where the previous structure stood for nearly a decade.
“We have vulnerable children and families in and out of our four campuses every single day. So to be able to have a space where they have joy and happiness and they feel welcomed is really important,” said Stephanie Powell, Deschutes Children’s Foundation Events and Marketing Manager.
This space will get a lot of use from different organizations like NeighborImpact and Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Central Oregon.
Deschutes Children’s Foundation said it provided funding along with a Community Development Block Grant from the City of Redmond.
