The main tower was the first to be built as playground construction got underway July 11. LPA staff assisted the project by preparing the site, and delivering and spreading pea gravel to form the base.
The playground construction took four days to complete.
One feature of the playground is a bridge between two structures that is in the shape of a bear. Here workers maneuver the bear into place.
Kaylee Pflieger, nine-year-old daughter of Dan and Melissa Pflieger, was the first child to test out the new playground when it was completed July 14. The family lives near Sunset Beach.
Melissa Pflieger and her daughter Kaylee try out the modern-day teeter-totter that is part of the new playground at Sunset Beach.
Maxwell Schrieber tries out one of six slides at the new Sunset Beach playground. He is the great-grandson of Merlin and Jody Muench, who live near Sunset Beach. Jody Muench is a member of the Friends of Lake Panorama board of directors.
The south side of the playground features several rocks and logs to climb on and crawl through.
Kurt Johnson refurbished a large bench that had to be moved to make way for the playground. He volunteered his time to replace, stain and seal the wood, paint the metal legs and reinstall the bench in its new location north of the playground.
