Two children were greeted by a chain link fence surrounding Zapata Park’s brand new playground Tuesday afternoon.

The park at Washington Square, located in Alkali Flat on 905 E St., was scheduled to open yesterday after the cement foundation solidified.

Maria Kernan, a representative of the Community Housing Opportunities Corporation regarding the park, said that the fence would be removed at noon tomorrow.

Home Depot and KaBOOM!, a non-profit organization that builds playgrounds across the nation, teamed up on a project for the park that took over two months to complete.

The playground was erected and the park was rejuvenated last Thursday with the help of over 250 volunteers. The playground was created for children ages 2-12.

While the rest of the park is still open, including the repainted basketball court, a few hopscotch areas and a swing-set for two, the playground is still off-limits.

There was also a large dirt mound on the side of the playground outside of the fence that has not been removed since the project’s completion.

By tomorrow afternoon, the playground should be open to children for the first time.
