Playground renovation completion delayed
Renovations of the play area at Lackman Playground in Bustleton had been scheduled to be completed by early June, according to Councilman Brian O’Neill (R-10th dist.), who said they’ll now be finished in September.
The new date had to be set because of weather delays and the need to have access to the playground for the scheduled summer camp. Work on the building, parking lot and fencing will begin prior to the June 7 start of camp, the councilman stated in a news release last week. After camp ends on Aug. 15, the play area will be completed as soon as possible.
