LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – It was day one of a volunteer playground build at Shillito Park in Lexington on Wednesday.  More than 120 people turned-out to help.

Organizers say there are grandparents who came out for this new project who took part with their children on the last build 26-years ago.  And, there are children who are taking part with their parents in 2019.
