DETROIT LAKES — The playground and sport court at Detroit Lakes' South Shore Park will be officially unveiled at a ribbon-cutting ceremony set for 4 p.m. on Wednesday, June 15.

According to Detroit Lakes Park Board Chairwoman Karen Skoyles, work on the playground equipment and sport court is now complete, and the people who worked on the fundraising for the project wanted an opportunity to thank all those who donated to it.

"We could not have done this project without them," Skoyles said. "Donations made it possible for the playground equipment, plants for the pollinator garden and education area, trees for the food forest and sport court to be installed in the first phase of development."

"The donor recognition signage should be ready for the ceremony," she added.

Light refreshments will also be served following the ribbon cutting.
