New McKinley Park playground opening today

The new structure

Rebuild McKinley, the group created to build a new playground to replace the one destroyed in a fire last year, is having a grand opening event today to celebrate the creation of the new structure. The new structure is amazing, with major elements sharing an East Sacramento theme (continuing some of the designs in the previous structure). It also appears to be surrounded by a fence, which to me is a tremendous upgrade as the place is huge. Lots of local organizations worked on this project, and to get it done so quickly is a real accomplishment.

It sounds like quite the event today!

There will cake served and plenty of additional family activities including DJ music by Apollo Entertainment, face painting and balloon animals and President McKinley will be joined by other living history characters. Take the night off from cooking as food will be available for purchase from some of our finest food trucks including Krush Burgers, Drewski’s Hotrod, BaconMania, Chando’s Tacos, Gameday Grill, Simply Southern Foods, Volkswaffle, Rich’s Ice Cream and Local Kine Shave Ice!
