HICKORY, NC (WBTV) - The playground being built in memory of Zahra Baker is finally under construction.

The playground is being constructed at Kiwanis Park after several Kiwanis Clubs raised more than $200,000 to have the playground built.

The playground equipment is unique in that all children, even handicapped, will have access.

A community work day is set for two weeks from Thursday thru that Saturday.

Anyone canhelp build the playground, all skills are needed.
