The Republican National Convention not only will help give Tampa an economic boost, but also a new playground area. Human and Kaboom are teaming up to build a new playground at Ragan Park in East Tampa. This year both organizations plan to build playgrounds in the two cities hosting the politic conventions. Charlotte,North Carolina, the host of the 2012 Democratic National Convention, will also get a new playground built courtesy of a Humana and Kaboom.
Tampa’s new playground will be part of community effort of more than 200 volunteer gathering at Ragan Park on August 11th to create a multigenerational playground. In addition to the traditional playground equipment for children, there will be fitness stations and walking paths that adults can use to get fit and stay active.
