Packers build new playground at Center Street Park

NOW: Packers build new playground at Center Street Park


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- There was a green and gold sighting Tuesday, but at a different kind of field. 

Several Packers players showed up at Center Street Park to help build a new playground.

It's part of the NFL's "Huddle for 100" campaign, which aims to inspire a million people to volunteer 100 minutes of their time to make meaningful contributions to their communities. 

They're trying to not only improve Milwaukee's neighborhoods, but also get kids moving.

"This was a lot of fun," said Packers Defensive Lineman Tyler Lancaster. "We definitely got our hands dirty, and I'd really love to come back down here, maybe another area in the future and do this again."

They had to dodge a few raindrops, but at the end of the day, a bunch of neighborhood kids had a new place to play.
