Community Center playground to open soon

Who hasn’t noticed the amazing new playground equipment rising from the pavement beside the Lovejoy Community Center?

This welcomed addition to an ever-growing recreational and entertainment complex is expected to be opened in the next couple of weeks, according to City Engineer Mark Whitley. He told city council members Monday night that the ground covering still needed to be finished, and a safety fence will be installed.

Mayor Bobby Cartwright said the playground will be open for children to enjoy it as soon as construction is complete. An official opening ceremony will follow when the best date for such an event is determined.
