Curtiss Field gets new playground
Despite the heavy downpours on June 3, more than 200 volunteers from the Minnesota Vikings, the Toro Company, the City of Falcon Heights, organizers from KaBOOM! and residents of Falcon Heights joined forces on June 3 to build a new playground at Curtiss Field, located at 1555 Iowa St. in Falcon Heights.
The Toro Company and the Minnesota Vikings donated more than $692,000 to build 10 playgrounds in the Twin Cities area with KaBOOM!, a national nonprofit dedicated to bringing balanced and active play into the daily lives of all kids, particularly those growing up in poverty in America.
