Deschutes Children's Foundation playground

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.
