With a fabulous facelift on the building, it was obvious that the playground needed some serious attention. Main Street applied for and was awarded a grant through Toyota Mississippi. The grant gave Main Street the opportunity to refurbish some very cool vintage pieces, add swings, and a musical instrument station. Several people quickly hopped on board to make the updated playground a reality for the community. The city's inspectors helped to plan and prep the area for large scale instruments, new equipment, and seating. Contractors sandblasted, shored up, and painted pieces original to the space that brought back several memories to community members. Parks and Rec city officials, volunteers, and Main Street staff helped install equipment, safety surfacing, garbage cans, picnic tables, two new brick patios, and fresh landscape.
