(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – An impressive new playground has been installed at Ludlow Hill Park.

The City of Lawrenceburg unveiled the $600,000 playground on Thursday.

“Starting last year, we had a committee of parents and community members help design the new playground at our Ludlow Hill Park,” said Mayor Kelly Mollaun. “This $600,000 project took a lot of time, with great input from our playground committee, to finalize a design that could be utilized by different age groups for ultimate fun and healthy experience.”

The Ludlow Hill Park Playground Committee is comprised of Brittany Bleich, Eric Abbott, Dan Rogers, Jack Granger, April Pearson and Lydia Morath.

The playground equipment was supplied by Snider Recreation Inc. with installation supervised by City of Lawrenceburg Engineering Director Mike Clark and Construction Project Manager Mario Todd.

When using the new playground equipment, kids and parents are urged to follow these guidelines:

  • Wash hands or use hand sanitizer before and after play
  • Maintain six feet apart for safe social distancing
  • Shoes must be work at all times on playground equipment and turf due to hot surfaces
  • If you are sick – please stay home

“Following our Clean, Safe and Healthy guidelines, our city workers do a great job of keeping the grass cut and the equipment safe, clean and operational for visitors to enjoy,” said Communications Director Guinevere Emery.
