Old Tires Get New Life in Kids’ Play Structure

Peter Edmunds smiles: the colorful project turned out very well.

Border Partners Founder, Peter Edmunds, hatched the idea to create long lasting, sturdy, play structures from recycled tires. With help from the creative and hardworking Marisol, they painted the tires and secured them, producing the colorful structures. This play equipment has been installed in a small fenced-in playground adjacent to the Border Partners Sports Center. Peter hopes to build more of these playgrounds around Palomas before his summer return to Minnesota.
