Repair and repainting of playground equipment at the North & Middle Ward Playground in Tamaqua began on July 28, 2015 with the first wire-brushing and application of primer to the four person “bouncy animal” ride. Work will continue, with the animals being painted in pleasing bright colors similar to what they were originally.
This week, “Pennies for the Park” donation cans will be placed in area businesses.
The playground, located along Washington Street, is in need of volunteers as well as monetary donations toward repairs, paint and various needed items.
