Along with kids from the Jordan Boys and Girls Club, the Patriots used their imaginations and got creative with new playground equipment. In a partnership with the Patriots Foundation, CarMax and KaBoom!, the kids helped to unveil their brand new Imagination Playground.
The equipment isn't a typical playground. The bright blue pieces are portable and can be used to build just about anything that the kids can come up with, and Joe said they did not disappoint.
"[There were] a couple of engineers, a couple of architects. They’re building some cool stuff. I had to get out of their way because they were just taking the bull by the horns. It was really fun though it was great," Joe said.
Together they built forts and towers, and though the windy day made stability a challenge, they laughed the whole time. Afterwards, the Patriots ran football drills for the kids on the Gillette Stadium field. It was a day giving back to the community that the players look forward to the most, Joe said.
"It’s definitely great. You see so many people in the stands and the support in New England," Joe said. "Most of the time we’re here working or practicing, so when we get the time, it’s nice to actually meet some of these people and some of the fans, especially kids."
