WEST HAVEN, CT (WFSB) -
A new playground in memory of a Sandy Hook shooting victim was officially opened for play on Sunday at Sea Bluff Beach in West Haven.
The new playground is part of the Sandy Ground, Where Angels Play Project, and is in memory of first-grader Charlotte Bacon, who was killed during the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
"I'm just so glad that it worked out with this location, we loved coming here, to this beach location, with Charlotte, it was one of her favorite things to do," said Joel Bacon, Charlotte's father.
This is the 24th playground, and it is full of Charlotte's favorite things - the color pink and dogs. The playground has slides, swings, bridges and bells.
Charlotte was one of the 26 students and educators who were killed, and each "Where Angels Play" project carries on the memory of those lost.
"I think it's a really great way to memorialize these kids and to let other kids be a part of that. It's for kids, in honor of kids," said Lisa Durand, of West Haven, who added that she had to talk with her 5-year-old after the tragedy happened. "He knew what had happened, and when we explained the playground to him, we said one of the girls who was part of that whole story, this is a playground in honor of her and in dedication to her. This is something very special for her and her family."
There are two more playgrounds left to open: Noah Pozner's in New York and Dawn Hochsprung's in Watertown.
