Baumann Park will soon have some new additions.
Upgraded playground equipment is expected to be delivered July 26th and be fully installed July 27th. Funds for the $49,000 upgrade is coming from park improvement money budgeted by the village. The Cherry Valley Festival Days Committee also donated some money towards the playground.
Cherry Valley Public Works Director, Chuck Freeman says instead the current playground is almost 25 years old.
"Instead of replacing some old parts and pieces on this current playground that we have, it's almost better just to go ahead and replace it, have it up to date with all of the safety features and what not that go with it."
The village needs 20 to 25 volunteers to help install the playground. Call Cherry Valley Village Hall at (815) 332-3441
