HOUSTON – Everyone needs a fun, safe spot to play outside right? Of course they do!

Ronald McDonald House Galveston, UTMB and Shriners Children’s Hospital have created something very special for young patients - a playground safe enough for everyone to play.

This was truly a community effort for so many Galvestonians, who were proud to be a part of this project.
