On Saturday, December 5th, the Lake Murray Playground Project (LMPP) held a kick off celebration, unveiling plans to renovate the once-popular Lake Murray Community Park playground. But because of lack of funding, what little equipment left at the playground has deteriorated, is outdated, and holds little appeal for children. A group of area residents plans to raise 100% of the money needed to rebuild the playground and reclaim the park for the community's children.

"This is a great example of what can happen when neighbors come together," Councilmember Marti Emerald said.

Free hot dogs and fruit, arts and crafts, music and a fire truck were some of the activities for the many families in attendance enjoyed.

Fundraising plans are coming together. If you'd like get involved or you'd like to learn more, log onto
