Crossridge Park Playground – Ribbon Cutting Ceremony August 28th at 5 p.m.

The Crossridge Park Playground on Saturday,
August 23rd nearing completion
The official ribbon cutting ceremony and opening of the Crossridge Park Playground has been rescheduled for Thursday, August 28, 2014 at 5 p.m. due to the anticipated weather forecast and the delay of finishing one piece of equipment due to a missing part.

The Parks & Recreation Commission would like to thank the approximately 50 volunteers that helped during the Crossridge Park Playground Build Day on Saturday, August 23, 2014. The volunteers helped pick rocks from the playground site, dig holes, assemble slides and other equipment, and ultimately install each piece. The Parks & Recreation Commission could not have accomplished all that was done without the help of the dedicated volunteers that devoted a day to build a playground.

The Parks & Recreation Commission would also like to thank Casey’s General Store for donating bags of ice and pizza for the volunteers and Kwik Trip for donating donuts, coffee, and water for the volunteers.
