In the center of the park, a new jungle gym was erected.

Around the park, everyone was pitching in and working to get things done.





About eight to 10 people were working on the jungle gym, some holding pieces in place while others took wrenches to bolts securing the structure.

At the other end of the park, another volunteer was working to build a horseshoe toss, for the more "grown-up" patrons of the park.


Here, Justin Trago and Rob McBrien work to make new contoured planks for the teeter-totters, while another group behind them works on placing all-new boards on the existing picnic tables.

Genia Lock (purple T-shirt) watches as workers place the memorial stone in its proper place.







The existing swing and slide set has a new coat of paint, as does the set of monkey bars right behind it.





As she watches the park turn into something the town can be very proud of, Jodi Duncan (center), who first thought of doing the renovation, back in January, can't help but shed a tear of joy. "This is about healing," she said.
