Goodlettsville, volunteers create KABOOM playground in single day


Local volunteers, Goodlettsville municipal and Parks and Recreation Department employees, Recreational Concepts staff, and supporters from Mapco worked with recreation non-profit KABOOM to create a new playground at Goodlettsville’s Brooks Park in a single day. The community-built, kid-designed playground was ready for play by 3 p.m. the day it was built, and the 250 volunteers also added a new shade structure, eight new benches, three new picnic tables, a bike rack, and two Little Free Libraries to the area. KABOOM volunteers met with children in Goodlettsville to ask them what things they would like to see in a playground, which will serve an estimated 2,000 children in the Goodlettsville area.
