Walker, La (NBC33) — Kids at South Fork Elementary in Walker will soon have a brand new playground to call their own.
Dedicated parents worked on fundraising efforts that eventually paid off and covered the expenses on a $40,000 playground for the three-year-old school.
Parents and volunteers started construction on the playground Friday.
"We have a lot to add on,” stated Principal Allison Raborn. “As we continue fundraising efforts, we are setting it up so we can build on back as years go on and fundraising continues."
The playground should be ready for all the kids to enjoy, come time for school on Monday.
