In order to keep the playground safe and clean there is a lot of maintenance that takes place every year, most of it is done by the park staff. Occasionally a project needs to be done that spells “Community Fun”. As soon as the weather warms up we plan to have a “MULCH DAY”. There will be food, fun and games while we spread new mulch inside the playground. Anyone interested in helping organize this can call the park office 799-5544 or E-mail us at [email protected].
