Stewart Vincent Wolfe Creative Playground"We Will Rebuild" "Bigger, Better, Safer"
On Sunday, December 28, 2014 the playground that was build entirely by Yuma community members, tragically, was set on fire, and destroyed.
The City of Yuma appreciates the outpour of support from community members, businesses and organizations that have come forward in the aftermath of the fire to raise money for the future rebuild of the playground.
The rebuild contruction is set to begin in September, with a grand opening tenitively set for late November, 2015.
