The community turned out in a big way over the weekend to help install the new playground at Thompson Park.

Volunteers pitched in moving some of the smaller equipment and sprucing up the surrounding area.

The playground comes at a cost of nearly $400,000, with $50,000 kicked in by the state to help cover costs.

After initially having trouble securing bids from construction companies, Terlouw Construction was hired by the city to do the heavylifting, with community members handling the smaller pieces.
