Fans of the world-famous blue hedgehog, Sonic, will be happy to know that in celebration of the speedy character’s 20th anniversary, SEGA has something special in store for you. SEGA has teamed up KaBOOM! And Youth UpRising to design and build a custom playground inspired by the iconic blue hedgehog in the community of East Oakland, CA this year. Beginning October 28th, volunteers from SEGA of America and members of the local community will construct the playground in just one day.
The playground will be designed by the very kids who will be enjoying it, making it a very special place for the entire community. The playground will provide the over 400 children in the community with a space to play with for the years to come. This playground will open for play on the same day as the launch of the upcoming Sonic game, Sonic Generations (November 1st). No pictures have been released, but you can follow SEGA’s Twitter account and Facebook page for pictures and progress reports. Anybody planning to volunteer their help for construction of the playground?
