(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – The Cities of Lawrenceburg and Aurora are promoting healthy living through municipal collaboration.

In Lawrenceburg, the new Arch Street Park playground is progressing nicely, and should be ready to reopen on June 2.

The playground is partially funded by a GameTime Grant of $190,403. The Arch Street Playground will be a National Demonstration Site, including the 7 Principles of Inclusive Playground Design.

Features include ADA accessible Hybrid Structure, more swings, Shadow Play Tri Runner, RoxAll See Saw, Merry Go Round, Infinity Bowl, and Synthetic Turf.

“Makes you want to be a kid again!” Construction Project Manager Mario Todd exclaimed.

Lawrenceburg Councilman Brett Bondurant described the playground as “pretty awesome!”

City officials will host an Opening Rededication Event at Arch Street Playground on June 2 at 5:30 p.m.

The former Arch Street Park playground equipment will debut this weekend at Aurora City Park. The City of Aurora was responsible for the demo and removal of the structure and the transfer to its new site.
