University Church of Christ is constructing a playground on the corner of Campus Court and East North 16th Street.
UCC recently received a generous donation through a legacy program and are using some of the money to help fund their new community outreach program. They will be adding a playground to their campus on the side that faces East North 16th Street. The playground will be not only for the congregation but also the surrounding community.
“Our hopes for the playground is to bring both our congregation and the neighborhood community together,” said Jason Craddock, University Church of Christ Youth Minster.
UCC is also hoping that with the new addition to their campus it will become more welcoming in appearance.
“Breaking down the walls will soften the appearance and have a more inviting atmosphere,” Craddock said.
It has not yet been decided when the playground will officially open because they are still waiting on the delivery and preparation. UCC is hopeful that it will arrive sometime before Christmas so that they are able to set up the playground and have a grand opening for the community.
