Kids can now enjoy new slides, climbing areas, tunnels and more at the City Park playground.

“We got it in place for Water Carnival as promised to the Jaycees,” Public Works Director Brad Green said with a laugh.


The park’s previous playground was 40-plus years old and was sold for scrap. The new equipment, which is mainly plastic and not metal like the old one, cost about $59,000, with the total project costing $65,000.
