CBJ alumni dropping sticks for shovels at new park installation

As a commitment to the community and the younger generation, Columbus Blue Jacket Foundation has announced a new playground going into Barnett Community Center.

On August 15, Blue Jackets staff alongside former players will spend the day completing the installation of the playground—the fourth of eight others by the hockey foundation.

Back in 2016, the CBJ Foundation announced a $400,000 grant commitment to build and install eight Blue Jackets-themed playgrounds throughout central Ohio over the next four years to help kids get healthy, play safely and stay active.


“The Blue Jackets organization is incredibly proud to be part of providing this opportunity and helping the City toward its goal of having a playground and park within a half mile of every home,” said Kathryn Dobbs, Columbus Blue Jackets Vice President of Community Development and Executive Director, Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation. 

The installation of the playground will take place on Wednesday, August 15, 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Barnett Community Center is located at 1184 Barnett Rd., Columbus.
