Construction is underway on Phase 2 of Savannah's Playground

Construction is underway on Phase 2 of Savannah's Playground at Grand Park, near The Market Common...

The addition will include $400,000 worth of new playground equipment. One of the elements is called a "We Go Round," which can spin two wheelchairs at once. This is only the second one installed anywhere, and it was donated by Carolina Parks and Play, the company that provided the rest of the existing play equipment. Phase 2 will include a fence around the ponds, too. Loo...k for construction to be completed in two months or so.

Savannah's Playground is an enabling playground, designed for children of all physical abilities. Phase 1 was a $1.5 million project, thanks to many donors' contributions. The playground is named for Savannah Thompson and is adjacent to the city's Crabtree Memorial Gymnasium.
