(DALLAS) – Southeast Dallas residents will join Dallas Park and Recreation officials at a ribbon-cutting ceremony 9 a.m. Saturday, July 28 to welcome a new playground at Bitter Creek Park, 912 Woodgreen Dr. in Dallas.
Ceremony participants include Dallas City Council member Rickey D. Callahan; Dallas Park and Recreation Board member Yolanda Williams, and representatives from area community groups.
According to park officials, vandals destroyed the park’s existing playground a few years ago. A Community Development Block Grant has funded the new playground and Park and Recreation Planning, Design, and Facility Services employees developed the playground’s design and provided construction and installation of the new equipment.
The City of Dallas has more than 200 playgrounds at park sites throughout the city.
