The former Kaleidoscope Park site has sprung in order to new life in recent days, with the installation of a colorful choice of new playground equipment that in a mere over a month will afford children coming from all abilities with the chance to participate in new adventures together in the outdoor setting.
Bellefontaine Joint Recreation District Superintendent Kris Myers said Monday that most major components of the handicapped accessible Come Play for the Peak Playground have been assembled, which includes climbing structures, photo slides and bridges, along with a big canopy to shield youths from the elements.
One of the final portions from the work will begin in early October when using the installation of the safety surfacing for the playground, a turf surface by using foam underneath that aligns with fall cushioning standards, Myers stated.
Although a safety fence at present surrounds the playground while it’s less than construction, the outdoor recreation area is going to be open to area youths the moment the safety surfacing is completing, likely just prior to some sort of grand opening celebration, slated with regard to 2 p. m. Sunday, Oct. 30.
“With the favorable weather disorders lately, we’ve been pleased to have made a good deal of progress on the playground, ” Myers claimed. “We’re excited host the grand opening celebration with the Logan County Board of Developing Disabilities, and will have the chance to honor all of those people individuals and community groups who helped us a whole lot with the fundraising for this project.
