Two professional athletes and various community members are coming together to make big changes at a local playground.

John Gilmore and Chad Henne's foundation is behind renovations to Barbey's Playground on Schuylkill Avenue in Reading.

Thursday, plans for the playground were unveiled.

John Gilmore spoke to the crowd at the meeting.

Officials say the changes include adding a community garden, basketball courts, and sprinklers.

They say their goal is to have the project completed by the end of June.
