New Playground Installed Thanks to County Recycling Grant

Posted on October 11, 2017


Harmon ParkThe parks and recreation staff recently installed new playground equipment at Harmon Park, located at 545 N. Elm Street, across the street from a baseball diamond and football field.

 

The new equipment was purchased thanks to a $14,232 recycling incentive grant from Montgomery County Solid Waste District.

 

The previous equipment was approximately 20 years old. The new equipment, made from recycled plastics, is geared to children age three to seven.

 

“It’s a playground that sees heavy use, not only by neighborhood children, but also from visitors to the recreational sports complex across the street,” said Christian Mattingly, parks and recreation director.

 

“We really appreciate the assistance from the Solid Waste District that allows us to continue to make improvements to our city parks, while also promoting their goals of recycling, litter prevention and waste prevention,” Mattingly said.

 

The city also received a similar Montgomery County Solid Waste District grant for Friend Park, located at 155 Squire St., in 2015.
