Chico, Calif.—After months of construction the Caper Acres playground in Chico is finally complete.

Families gathered for the ribbon cutting and grand opening in Bidwell Park Saturday.

Other groups such as Chico Sunrise and Noon Rotary volunteered hundreds of hours.

Mayor Sean Morgan gave awards to four members of the Chico State AGC Student Chapter for donating more than 1,000 hours to this project.
