Crosslake Community Center gets new playground pieces
A grand opening for part of the new playground is set June 12
CROSSLAKE — Volunteers have been working to install new playground pieces at the Crosslake Community Center.
A five-phase playground is being installed thanks to $187,000 in funds raised through the Parks and Library Foundation, and $50,000 in city park dedication fees.
Donations include $80,000 from the Dietz family, $40,000 from the Crosslake Ideal Lions Club and $10,000 from the Christmas for Kids organization.
In total, the community raised $237,000 for the playground equipment.
The previous playground equipment was between 16 and 23 years old.
A grand opening will take place Sunday, June 12, for the Mary Lu Dietz Obstacle Course part of the playground.
