The public is invited to attend a special ceremony hosted by the City of Las Cruces. This event, billed as Honoring Our Past, Celebrating Out Future, recognizes the unique history of this community-built structure that was erected in 2001 thanks to community donations and dozens of volunteers.
The playground is made mostly of wood, the harsh southwest climate has deteriorated the surfaces over the past 20 years to a point where playground safety is a fundamental concern. The City is investing close to $2 million to rehabilitate the park, paid for from the general obligation bonds that voters supported in 2018. Wednesday’s ceremony will feature guest speakers from the City in addition to the 2001 volunteers who participated in the project. Ziggy, the Parks and Recreation Department’s mascot, will make a guest appearance and students from Jardin de Los Ninos are helping the City with the celebration. Representatives from the architectural firm, contractors and the program management are expected to be available. Renderings of the new playground will be on hand.
