The $90,000 makeover of the Land of Laughter playground on Harriott Avenue in Oil City has reached one of its milestones.
New equipment has been installed, the landscaping around the equipment has been finished, and the city has re-opened the facility so families can again enjoy the park.
Included in the setup are kids’ rides on a plastic dinosaur and whale, each mounted atop heavy spring columns, sliding boards, a climbing wall, swings, benches and more.
Howard Faunce, the city’s director of public works, said more funding is being sought to complete the project.
The facility is on the site of the former Lincoln school and was turned into a playground in 1999. The playground hadn’t been upgraded since that time.
