Disney Voluntears, Kaboom & McFarland PlaygroundIn celebration of the release of the upcoming Disney film McFarland, USA, Disney and KaBOOM! joined with the community that inspired the film to build a brand-new playground in McFarland, Calif.

Disney Voluntears, Kaboom & McFarland PlaygroundOver 200 Disney VoluntEARS came together with talent from the film, members of the McFarland community and the McFarland Tri-Agency Partners, and the nonprofit organization KaBOOM! to transform an empty lot in McFarland into a kid-designed playspace in less than eight hours. The playground is inspired by children’s drawings created at a special event in January, which were incorporated into the final playground design.

Disney Voluntears, Kaboom & McFarland PlaygroundThe new playground is one of many made possible through Disney’s longstanding relationship with KaBOOM! as part of Disney’s Magic of Healthy Living, an initiative that partners with parents to inspire kids to lead healthier lifestyles. By the end of 2015, Disney’s support will bring the magic of play to over 83,000 kids and families.

Disney Voluntears, Kaboom & McFarland PlaygroundMcFarland, USA opens in the U.S. on February 20.
