Ribbon cutting set for “Equal Play” playground


Mon, Jun 1st, 2015
Posted in Preston Features

The Preston Park Board invites the community to attend a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new “Equal Play” accessible playground at the Preston Swimming Pool. The ceremony will be Monday, June 8, 2 p.m. at the Preston Swimming Pool.

About the playground

The playground at the Preston Pool dates back 50 or more years. Much of the playground equipment was outdated and in need of replacement. There was also community interest in building a playground that was accessible to children of varying mobility. The Preston Park Board coordinated the project and sought donations. The total project cost was $42,000. Donations equaled three-fourths of the project cost, the largest donation, $20,000, came from the Preston Area Community Foundation. The playground features ADA accessible matting, two slides, climbing wall, horizontal loop ladder, and an ADA swing.

For more information, contact: Joe Hoffman, City of Preston office: (507) 765-2153, jhoffman@prestonmn.org.
