The memories of our childhood playgrounds remain with many of us as adults. A recent study of Kansas City's parkland revealed that low-income areas have fewer playgrounds in their parks than high-income areas.

On Monday's Central Standard we investigated this disparity and gained insight into the process of building a playground. In the Scarritt Renaissance Neighborhood, some residents are working with the Parks Department to build a new playground that will give their children a place to make memories.
