New playground unveiled in Hazleton

A new backyard playground for foster children in Hazleton opened Friday, just in time for summer.

HAZLETON, Pa. — There's a new place for children to play in Luzerne County.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at Brandon's Forever Home along North Church Street in Hazleton. 

The organization, along with the "Dream Builders," part of Leadership Wilkes-Barre's Class of 2020, unveiled a new backyard playground for foster children.

The playground was scheduled to be completed last spring, but wasn't finished until November because of supply shortages.
