This video tells the story of Harper’s Playground – bringing us back through the early design stages, the fundraising fun, our groundbreaking and ribbon cutting ceremonies, all the way to Harper and the community enjoying the park today.
Hopefully, this brings back a lot of good memories for many of you! A lot of hard work went into its creation, and Harper’s Playground sends out a big thanks to Actual Industries and the crew that helped bring our story to life.
Help us make our dream of “MORE PLAY FOR EVERYONE” come true around the world!
