More than 200 volunteers are expected to join forces today to build a new playground from the ground up at Girls Inc. of Fort Smith, 415 Old Greenwood Road.

The approximate timeline of events includes a kickoff at 8:30 a.m. followed by playground construction from 9:30 to 2:30 p.m. and a ribbon-cutting.

The playground build is made possible by Let’s Play, an initiative by Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPS) to provide kids and families with the tools, places and inspiration to make active play a daily priority, and its nonprofit partner KaBOOM! DPS business partners Platinum Distributing and Walmart are also supporting the project.
