Mesa is seeking volunteers on May 14 to help build a new playground in an 11-acre area of open space that has few amenities. The city decided to build a playground aimed at pre-school and grade-school children after holding community meetings about Golden Hills Park, 7256 E. Pueblo Ave. The play area will include a 75-foot long shade structure, making Golden Hills the only shaded play area in Mesa. The playground’s equipment was funded through donations from businesses and nonprofits. Volunteers are asked to start work at 6 a.m. May 14.
