Fashion retailer funds new playground at Cleveland Boys and Girls Club

Kids from the Broadway Avenue location helped design a new playground funded by DTLR.

CLEVELAND — A playground funded by a national fashion retailer was unveiled Thursday afternoon in Cleveland.

DTLR partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio (BGCNEO) to host a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a brand new playground at the BGCNEO Broadway Avenue location. DTLR donated $100,000 to fund the space, which was designed with input from children who attend the club.

The playground includes a rope challenge, rubber mulch padding, benches and an expanded play area. This comes just as kids prepare to go back to school.

There are 12 Boys & Girls Clubs across the Cleveland area, with two more set to open this year. Representatives from both organizations were on hard for the ribbon cutting.
