A day at the park

  • Play time: City officials on Oct. 30 ceremoniously opened a new playground at Tustin Street and Verree Road. Councilman Brian O’Neill (R-10th dist.) and the Department of Parks & Recreation spent $900,000 on “Champions Park,” which has equipment designed specifically to be accessible for children with special needs. There are three age-specific areas, for kids 2 to 5 years old; 5 to 12 years old; and a centerpiece for kids 2 to 12. Fencing was installed along busy Verree Road for safety. Construction on the site began in the spring and finished about a month ago. MARIA POUCHNIKOVA / TIMES PHOTOS
