Grand opening celebrates Crosslake's new playground
Project finished early thanks to dedicated volunteers
CROSSLAKE — A grand opening for the new playground at the Crosslake Community Center was held Saturday, Sept. 24.
This new playground was estimated as a two- to three-year project, but was accomplished in less than one year by a hard working group of volunteers.
The playground has an obstacle course with timer, several slide and climb systems, seated spinner, several swings, including some with accessibility design, and a shade feature.
Funding for the project evolved as a partnership of community organizations, including the Crosslake Ideal Lions, city of Crosslake park dedication funds, Christmas for Kids and many significant individual and business donations through the Crosslake Parks and Linbrary Foundation.
The project installation effort was led by TJ Grauman, Crosslake's director of parks, recreation and library.
