Playgrounds for children are in high demand, especially in big cities like Ho Chi Minh City where there is a shortage of public places for entertainment. During summer, the municipal Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union has built many playgrounds made from recycled materials for children in rural areas.

The playground is within Binh Chanh district’s children palace. It is equipped with a see-saw, swing, slide and decorations, all made from recycle items, such as tyres, bottles and plastic boxes which were cleaned and re-painted.

The model in Binh Chanh district will be duplicated in many rural areas in Ho Chi Minh City. The model will also be implemented in remote areas in the southern Vinh Long and central Phu Yen and Binh Dinh provinces to help kids there have more fun before the new school year.-VNA
