  Construction Project- Phase II

SWING CITY is the next phase in a multi-phased project to restore the Playground and renovate the Playhouse. This new play area, located below the Giant Wooden Slide, will feature 18 to and fro swings as well as three different sets of swings designed for group use. A giant net climber, seesaw, climber/spinner will complete this extensive space. The addition of SWING CITY will allow Smith to serve 200 children at any one time on the Playground. SWING CITY is scheduled to open in late summer.

 

June 6 2006- SWING CITY is coming!!!!

The Haines and Kibblehouse crew is really moving things forward!
