More than 200 volunteers came out to put together Southwest Georgia's first all inclusive playground.

It's called the Butterfly Kiss Special Play Park located at 120 East 2nd Avenue in Leesburg.

Volunteers laid cement, mulch and made sure every screw was tight on the brand new play ground equipment.

Back in December Traci Henry won $50,000 Dollars to start the park from the Pepsi Refresh Challenge.

And she told us all this doesn't quite seem real just yet. "I'm kind of exhausted right now. We're all tired, but we can't stopped until the park is complete," said Traci Henry.

They're still asking for more volunteers to come out tomorrow at 11am to help finish up.

And on May 29th the Joel Nichols concert will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Butterfly Kisses Special Needs Play Park.
