A summer project helped make the Lucas County Children Services outdoor Family Visits Playground area brighter, more inviting and much more colorful. Art students from Bowling Green State University, Toledo artist Yusuf Lateef and Lorenzo Flores, art director for the Sofia Quintero Art and Cultural Center, worked together to create a series of murals along the formerly blank concrete walls surrounding the playground. The art project took about a week to complete. These murals are the first step in a comprehensive playground renovation project to replace the 25-year-old playground equipment and to create an all-inclusive, accessible playground with a bonded rubber surface. Lucas County Children’s Services protects children at-risk for abuse and neglect by working with families, service providers and the community to coordinate community-based services resulting in safe, stable and permanent families for children.
