After being stuck inside of the house for a COVID quarantine and then Hurricane Ida, Brittney Dufrene knew she had to take matters into her own hands to give her kids a sense of normalcy.
So that’s exactly what she did.
The Norco mother of two headed to Destrehan’s East Bank Bridge Park Saturday to let her kids play, but when she got there she discovered it littered with large tree branches and tons of leaves.
“I called up my grandmaw to bring me a rake,” Dufrene said laughing.
She spent about an hour and a half cleaning up the park grounds. She said her effort was well worth the time spent considering her children got to play.
“The kids surely enjoyed it, I must say,” she said. “I am no professional safety inspector or engineer, but myself and other parents, including guys, have been on the playground and the structure seems to have held up fine.”
