Community-funded playground opens in Columbia City

SEATTLE -- Community donations helped a south Seattle playground receive a massive overhaul.

Students at Columbia City's Orca School barely recognized their playground. The field had been grass and mud and now has basketball hoops, walking trails and a rain garden. There are also ramps for students with medical challenges, allowing them to get a chance to play.

"The new playground-- I see 10 kids like every single minute on it. It's a really successful thing," said student Alexa.

Volunteers planted new trees as well. Generations of students to come will watch them grow.
