RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation and Bon Secours are showing off plans for a new ‘Play 60’ playground here in Richmond!
The Skins are only the second team in the NFL to build a ‘Play 60’ playground. The playground installment is the result of a $150,000 project being funded by the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation and Bon Secours Virginia Health System.
It will be built in the East End near Woodville Elementary at 2535 Fairfield Avenue.
‘Play 60’ playgrounds are built for rigorous activity and the Redskins say it “will be a state-of-the-art, one-of-a-kind facility.”
Team owner, Dan Snyder says it’s a way his foundation can give back to the community.
“We have done so many different acts in the community that are important and we can touch lives using a combination of good will, charity, our football team, our organization and really make a difference,” Snyder said. “We love Richmond.”
