Browns players team up to help build a playground at a Cleveland elementary school

CLEVELAND - Browns players are committed to getting off the field and out into the Northeast Ohio community to help with projects that can have an impact.

Tuesday, a group of players, staff members, community leaders and volunteers built a playground complete with slides, monkey bars and climbers at Buckeye-Woodland Elementary School on Buckeye Road in Cleveland.

The playground is also disability-friendly with steps and handholds. Beside the equipment, the playground will have hopscotch, four square and a basketball court.

The Browns are part of the PLAY 60 program, a program that encourages children to be active for at least 60 minutes each day.
