The ceremony was moved indoors due to rain.
After raising more than $85,000 for a new playground at South Row School, students cut the ribbon on the project Saturday during an indoor ceremony.
The playground was rebuilt after a fire last July.
"What this support has given us is a whole brand new site," said Danielle Evans, chairman of the South Row Playground Committee. "We have a partially handicapped accessible playground with shredded rubber mulch, a walkway, and more surfacing to come."
Evans said the playground will also get a picnic table and benches.
"This started off as a seed and a dream about a year ago. You saw our dream and vision, but you made it better," said Evans, addressing all those who supported the project. "The morning our kids went to recess for the first time and saw it, the look on their faces and the excitement was tremendous. It made every minute of the work we've done worth it."
Playground for community used widely and learn to play and negotiate the world and it's fun to watch them navigate and see the games they come up with
