 City leaders will give remarks before a ceremonial ribbon cutting. The ceremony will begin at 9 a.m. Friday, August 4.

 "We are thrilled to be able to open this new playground for our community to enjoy. This is a perfect example of collaboration with Volusia County to create something truly special for our residents,” said Mayor Chris Cloudman. “We look forward to watching families enjoy the new playground for many years to come!” 

 Located at 720 North Frankfort Avenue, the new playground replaced equipment that was more than two decades old and was built with accessibility in mind. 

 Equipment elements include an accessible Merry-Go-Round, slide structure, shade structure, climbing walkway, stair climber, accessible escape swing, accessible escape bay, expression swing tandem, bongo drums, see saw dragon fly, rope climber and modified tire swing. The surface around the playground is impact flooring/poured rubber.
