DE PERE, WI (WTAQ) - The Green Bay Packers and Humana teamed up Tuesday to build a new playground in De Pere.

The play area is at Braisher Park, where Packers President Mark Murphy says kids can now get out and be active, much like the NFL's "Play 60" campaign.

"With TV now and all the different video games, kids just aren't as active as they used to be," says Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy. "So I think it's a great initiative and it's had some great success."

Humana officials say they liked getting out as part of their commitment to promote health and wellness in the community.

"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.

The whole project took about six hours.
