A place to play...
Children check out the new playground at the Castle Valley Town Center, which was officially opened on Friday, Oct. 14. Castle Valley council member Tory Hill credited librarian Jenny Haraden as being instrumental in getting the project started. Most everything used to put the playground together was recycled or reused, including the donated playground equipment, which had been used at the former Red Rock Elementary School in Moab. The equipment includes two swings, monkey bars and a sandbox. “They say it takes a village to raise a child but it also takes a village to raise a child’s playground,” Hill said. She thanked Leta Vaughn, Mitch Stock, Michael Ford Dunton and Haraden for their hard work on the project, as well a numerous other individuals and businesses who volunteered their time and labor and donated materials needed to complete the playground. “This project was a huge success and I just love how wonderful our community is,” Hill said.
