Growing Pains!

Veterans' Park is currently under construction.  All playground equipment has been removed to make room for a new and improved playground that will be accessible to all regardless of handicap.  We appreciate your patience during this time and we ask that for everyone's safety please do not allow young ones to play near the renovation site. Construction should be complete by late summer.  For a rendering on what the park will look like once complete, click here.
