Two local residents who are starting an indoor playground at the South Whidbey Community Center in Langley are in need of help to cover startup costs.

South Whidbey residents Zach and Sarah Ruggenberg, who will open The Backyard sometime this winter at the old Langley Middle School campus, have launched a fundraiser through generosity.com and are currently seeking donations. The Backyard is a non-profit organization that plans to use from funds from its indoor playground and fitness classes to fund memberships for low income, fixed income and foster families, according to a press release.

Because South Whidbey has about 200 days per year of cold or wet weather, the Ruggenberg’s believe The Backyard will provide an ideal play for kids of all ages to play indoors, as well as adults looking for an affordable fitness center, the press release said.
