Ferndale volunteers build kids playground

By On

The photos should tell the story. Starting last Tuesday morning, volunteers started building a children's playground next to Pioneer Park on Ferndale's south side. Its name is Star Park. Sunday evening they dedicated and opened it. No speechs. First a show of hands from all who had helped and then a countdown to a couple hundred kids joyously running into the new playground to try out all the fun toys.

We cannot do justice to it here and so are linking to other websites with more info, videos and photos. A tip of our hat to all the folks in Ferndale for a superbly done community project. And to our old blogger friend Riley Sweeney, now communications director for the city. He played a significant role in making this a success.

Hope you enjoy.
