June 9 - Ben's Red Swings Community Playground

Posted: Updated:

GOOD MORNING DELMARVA - We're having a party and everyone is invited! Ben's Red Swings Community Playground is now 10-years old, and we have scheduled a special birthday party to celebrate a Decade of Play.

Join us on Saturday, June 14, 2014, from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm for a celebration at Ben's Red Swings, located at the west entrance of the Salisbury Zoo. Bring your whole family to the playground to enjoy live music throughout the day and games for the kids. Food and drinks will be available for sale from local vendors. Reminisce with the construction captains and other area residents who brought this community-built playground to life in May 2004, and share your favorite memories over the past 10 y ears as you and your family have enjoyed Ben's Red Swings. Parking will be available at the Civic Center, with shuttle service provided to the playground, or enjoy a scenic stroll through the City Park and Salisbury Zoo to Ben's Red Swings.

Inspired by the memory of four-year-old Ben Layton, who died of leukemia in 2002, Ben's Red Swings was designed through the imaginative input of local children, funded by the generosity of hundreds of area businesses and individuals, and built entirely by more than 4,000 volunteers from May 11-16, 2004. The project stands as a testament to the spirit and generosity of our wonderful Eastern Shore community. Looking back, during those six beautiful days in May, we not only built a great play ground for generations of children to enjoy, we built a stronger community with a renewed sense of pride in what we can accomplish by working together.

Please join us on June 14, as we celebrate a Decade of Play at Ben's Red Swings.
