I met Mayor Jonathan Rothschild at the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) accessible playground at Reid Park. The playground has ramps and plenty of shade.
Mayor Rothschild said his favorite part of this project was getting the funding to build it. He also enjoyed seeing all the kids having so much fun together.
The new playground is located near the DeMeester band shell. The old playground there was removed. The playground has an area for little kids and one for bigger kids too.
Make sure you check out the new park. I think it is the best park you will ever go to! There are new benches, new swings, musical instruments, climbing structures, a rope climber, a drinking fountain for people and one for pets too.
After the ribbon cutting, those of us that attended were treated to popsicles.
