TIME TO MONKEY AROUND - Kids happily testing out the new playground equipment at Jasper City Park Monday, July 6th. Mom Whitney Poag brought out her three children, (L – R) Hattie, Brinlee, and Jensen, “to see what it was all about.” The family even brought along their new puppy to join in the fun. That afternoon, the Poags and other children seemed to enjoy the new play set, complete with swings, a climbing wall, slides, and other features.
Jasper Mayor Steve Lawrence said ‘phase II’ improvements, which will replace the other playground equipment near the tennis courts, should be complete in 60-90 days.
The temporary fencing around the larger playground will be replaced with permanent fencing after phase II is complete.
