Hart Park playground groundbreaking to be Saturday
With $130,000 raised toward the $180,000 goal, a playground equipment groundbreaking ceremony will be held at 11:30 a.m. Saturday at Peabody’s Hart Park.
A committee has worked three years to raise money for new playground equipment after the city’s insurance company decided not to cover liability at the playground unless its vintage equipment, now in deteriorated condition, was replaced.
Hearts for Hart Park committee member Tom Spencer said the ceremony will be followed by a picnic lunch.
Volunteers are needed to install the new playground equipment. It is hoped the work will be completed in time for Peabody’s 100th annual Fourth of July celebration this year.
