"This play structure is decades old, and the ground is uneven and unsafe," said Erika Taylor, YWCA CEO. "We want to completely overhaul this outdoor space to create a warm, inviting, colorful play space where kids can be creative and thrive."

YWCA says the expected cost to replace the old playground with the new one is around $125,000.

The new playground will include updated safety features, play structures, and sensory equipment.

So far, the project has raised $4,665.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
