MLS W.O.R.K.S., the Philadelphia Union Foundation, the Chester Upland School District and organizers from KaBOOM! hosted a design day for children at Science & Discovery High School yesterday. Philadelphia Union goalkeeper Chase Harrison was on-site to help out children from the Chester neighborhood put crayon to paper to draw their dream playgrounds. Elements from the children's drawings will be incorporated into the final design for the new community playground, which will be built on July 24 as part of the All-Star festivities and will provide more than 500 children in the Chester community with a safe place to play.
