The Chicago Mayor's Office is announcing that the national non-profit organization KaBOOM! has named Chicago a 2013 "Playful City USA" community.

The award is for the city's efforts to provide children with a wide variety of safe opportunities for play.

ABC7 and Disney are teaming up with KaBOOM! to build a playground in Chicago later this month at Tonti Elementary on the Southwest Side.

Disney is the parent company of ABC7.
