The parameters for this playground were very specific. The church had a particular place at the edge of the yard so the playground would not take up the small plot of land used for families to gather and interact.

It was a unique build because of the climate in Iraq no one is out during the day but as soon as the sun sets children and families emerge. It wasn’t until after the playground was finished and the reaction of the children and the families was noticed…then the church understood the importance of the playground. One would think the dedication was in the middle of a summer day by the number of children that showed up but it was 9pm! After seeing the impact of the playground the pastor of the church gave his blessing to build another playground anywhere on the property.
