BARRIO LOGAN (KUSI) - It was a big day for the people of Barrio Logan.
Just a short time ago, a million dollar makeover was unveiled in Chicano Park and San Diego's mayor did the honors.
It's a rare moment when someone can say they helped make the world a better place.
This is one of those moments.
Elizabeth Ayala is one of the teenagers who helped transform Chicano Park.
She's part of the Urban Corps, an organization that gives teenagers a second chance.
Using those new skills, Chicano Park now has a million dollar makeover: A brand new handball courts, along with basketball courts, a brand new skate park and two new playgrounds.
This park is in a neighborhood that's battled for every inch of space under the Coronado Bridge, a fight that has finally paid off.
