    Dozens of people rolled up their sleeves to help put the finishing touches on the Seamster Park Playground in East Hampton Sunday.

    Over 20 years ago, members of the community helped build it for the local kids, but the old playground was deemed unsafe after years of wear-and-tear.

    For the past couple of years, organizers have been fundraising to get money they needed to make this happen and with a little help from the town, it all came together.

    "This is really going to be a breath of fresh air for the community to see the kids playing in a safe environment where they can have a place to go now," Director of East Hampton Parks and Recreation Jeremy Hall said.

    The playground has plenty of new features for kids to enjoy including a zip line and a ropes course.
