Hayward kids get much-needed new playground

It was a big day for the kids at Park Elementary School in Hayward on Wednesday.

The students christened their new play structure, which was donated by Lowes and Carter's Kids, a non-profit dedicated to promoting fitness and self-esteem for America's youth.

School officials say a new structure was badly needed.

"We've been waiting for this structure for four months, it is a dream come true the kids, it is definitely something they deserve and they've been waiting for a while," Aaron Tigerino said.

Amazingly, the structure took just three days to build with employees from four East Bay Lowes stores doing the work in their free time.
