On Thursday, the Minnesota Vikings’ players took a break from the regular Organized Team Activities to make a trip to Cedar Lake Elementary for their annual playground build.
From all the reports, a good time was had by all, and numerous Vikings players and media shared some memories from the day on their social media accounts. We have compiled a bunch of those here for your viewing pleasure.

It certainly looks like a good time was had by all, and another school in the Twin Cities area got a new playground for their students to make use of.
I know that the Vikings have been doing this for quite a number of years now. . .I believe this was the 12th annual outing. . .but it’s still pretty heartwarming to see them continue to do it every offseason. This is certainly a heck of a lot better than the sort of stuff we used to end up reporting about this team most offseasons, that’s for sure.
There are plenty of other pictures and media of this year’s playground build available on the interwebs, but I think we pretty well captured the spirit of it here for everyone.
