ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – Construction for a new ADA-compliant playground began Tuesday in Roanoke.
The Kiwanis Club of Roanoke has donated the 10,000 square-foot playground to the City of Roanoke to celebrate their 100 year anniversary.
The playground will be beside the new Melrose Library.
The Kiwanis Club says it took four years of planning and three years of meetings to break ground on the project.
They raised nearly $400,000 to fund the playground.
The Kiwanis Centennial Playground’s final installation is tentatively expected to occur by late-July.
