On Wednesday, July 30, 2008, at 8:00 a.m.m Albertsons Sav-on Pharmacy, the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Bernardino, KaBOOM!, the City of San Bernardino and a host of volunteers will come together to build a children's playground at Delmann Heights Park located at 2969 N. Flores Street, San Bernardino 92407.

This is the second collaborative playground build with KaBOOM! the City has seen this year. The first KaBOOM! supported playground build occurred on March 29, 2008 at the Lytle Creek Park facility sponsored, in part, by the California Volunteers of the Governor's Office.

When asked about the sponsors of the playground build, Mayor Patrick J. Morris was glad to see that the city is expanding its list of new partners: "I'm very pleased that Albertsons Sav-on Pharmacy is one of our co-sponsors in this endeavor. They are a relatively new partner in creating more opportunities to improving the aesthetics and resources for our children on the Westside of the city and I hope that they will continue to support the city with future endeavors."

The playground build will take place at the Boys & Girls Club, Delmann Heights Community Center. Officials from the Boys & Girls Club, who have been diligently recruiting volunteers for the event, expect a volunteer turnout of 250-300 people.

The development of this new playground will be a continuation of a series of visions that 6th Ward Councilman Rikke Van Johnson is unfolding at Delmann Heights Park; "the KaBOOM Build provides a great opportunity for our community to come together and create a great play space at the Delmann Heights Community Center. This is only a partial fulfillment of the dreams that we have for this 20 acre park.:
