The Lamar County Recreation Department would like to announce to the public that as of November 1st the larger “yellow” playground area will be roped off and unavailable to the public. The playground has been a part of the Recreation Department for over 20 years. Many children have enjoyed countless hours of fun, laughter, and excitement on this equipment. However, it is time to move forward and bring to the next generation of children a more up-to-date playing structure. Our goal is to have the funding by February 2020 to begin installing new playground equipment. The new equipment will provide a safer playing structure. Our hope is to also have an area where the community will find a certified handicap swing. This will provide more families in our community the ability to enjoy our park. Moving forward with this project, the minimum amount needed to begin is $25,000.00. We have about half of this already allocated for the project and will be seeking grant opportunities to hopefully help with more funding. We are also reaching out to the community and local businesses and asking for you to partner with us. For more information on how to help see this project completed and be a part of moving Lamar County forward please contact Director Tiffany Lowe at 770.358.5800.
