COMMUNITY Park|

THE PARK IS BUILT!
Let's Play!

The City of Linn Grove is VERY excited to announce that the playground equipment for phase I of the park was installed on June 24th. The location of the new park is on the corner of Westerville and Broadway - across from the old Linn Grove School and gazebo.

Show below is the completed installation of Phase I of this three-phase project. Many, many thanks to the volunteers who worked to get the site ready, construct the equipment for this phase, and get the site ready for children to play on. Listed below are the individuals that volunteered their time to ensure the equipment was erected before we got too far into the summer season. Please remember to thank them if you see them!!!
