Now playing in Savonburg

Volunteers and groups have built a playground at the city's new park, using donations and grants. They're now working on a trail to the park from the city hall and library. An event is scheduled next month to encourage recycling and refurbishment, as well as a ribbon cutting for the park.

Savonburg Mayor Aaron Wilson watched children slide, swing and climb around the equipment at the city park’s new playground on Sunday. He smiled.

“That’s what it’s supposed to be. That’s the goal,” he said.

It’s taken years for the playground to take shape, but the equipment is now in place with a rubber-mulch base. Volunteer crews have marked the path of a new walking trail and are spreading crushed limestone along the quarter-mile path.
