The new playground at the Ben Lomond Park on Mill Street is being put to good use on Friday afternoon by local moms and their toddlers. The new landscaping and equipment is part of the initial phase of upgrades planned for the riverfront park which began in November. In addition to the new equipment and landscaping, significant grading was done on the site between the basketball court and the play area which will make the court safer and more inviting.
The basketball court has been completely resurfaced and is only awaiting lining before it too will be open for use. A grand opening is in the works but in the meantime the park is open daily from dawn to dusk.
