The Billings Township Community Park reopened on Saturday, May 29 after work was completed on the new playground. A ribbon cutting event was held for the park on Saturday, and many locals came out to enjoy the new playground equipment, provided food, ice cream and nice weather.
The old playground equipment was damaged during the flood in May 2020, which sparked the idea for a new playground to be developed. Even before the flood, the old equipment was in need of replacement, being over 50 years old.
Development began on April 26 and progressed smoothly. Volunteers played a large part in keeping the development of the playground on schedule. The Billings Township Parks & Recreation Committee is grateful for the many helping hands during the construction. They also are excited for the nearby residents to have an updated playground to enjoy this summer.
With the success of the new playground, the committee looks forward to other future additions coming to the community park as well.
