DE PERE - They're not your typical construction workers. But Tuesday, some Packers players left the pigskin at home and busted out the shovels.
They worked with Humana Incorporated to help build a playground at Braisher Park in De Pere.
The work took about six hours.
Those involved say it's great to get kids outside, enjoying nature and getting exercise.
"It helps promote wellness, its great for the kids, it gives them activity, it gives them exercise and things to happen so we're just really really proud to be in concert with the Packers building this,” said Jerry Ganoni with Humana.
"All these technical things and it takes away from the playgrounds, takes away from back here at football you know playing basketball at other people's houses so something like this you know if you get these around town, it helps out a lot,” said Don Barclay, Packers right tackle.
The new equipment was purchased through a Milwaukee-based group.
Concrete for the play area was donated by Green and Gold Concrete in Green Bay.
