Dan Willadsen predicts plenty of climbing when new equipment is installed at Junior Achievement park in central Loveland.

That’s what it was designed for, after all.

How can I help?

Volunteers are needed to help install the playground equipment and to run a Kids Zone activity area for those too young to volunteer. Those 16 and older can volunteer to work on the actual build with all equipment provided for them and no construction experience necessary. Volunteers who are 14 and 15 cannot enter the build zone but could help prepare building materials or also could help in the Kids Zone, which will include activities for those who are five to 11 years old. Those who are 12 and older can help with the activities in the Kids Zone. Students who volunteer can earn community service hours.

Volunteers are needed from 7:45 a.m. until about 2:30 p.m. Oct. 14.

Adults who want to be among the 200 needed to construct the playground can register online at

Teens who want to volunteer or anyone who wants to help with the Kids Zone should contact Pam Greaney at 962-2446 or
