Patriots make playgrounds possible in Fall River, Taunton
Playgrounds with a decidedly New England Patriots theme were unveiled Tuesday in Fall River and Taunton.
The Kraft family and the New England Patriots Foundation donated $300,000 worth of equipment that was split between both cities. Those communities had trouble funding the parks alone.
After months of construction, the playgrounds are welcoming children. Patriots players, cheerleaders and Pat Patriot attended ribbon-cuttings in both cities.
The playgrounds are located at Maplewood Park in Fall River and at Weir Riverfront Park in Taunton.
