GALENA–The Kiwanis Club of Galena recently donated new playground equipment for Grant Park.
On July 6, the old playground was removed to make room for new equipment.
In addition to the Kiwanis donation, construction assistance was donated by Mike & Nick Sproule Construction and Matt Heller and Louie’s Trenching Service.
Installation took place on July 7. The structures were assembled and cement was poured. GameTime workers were hired from Rockford and assisted local volunteers in the process.
In addition to new equipment, the new playground has also been re-mulched.
Among the new additions are a slide, swing-set and jungle-gym.
The only piece that remains from the previous park is the merry-go-round.
