Cherryville playground opens

A new playground has been unveiled at Hanson Park in Cherryville

Cherryville children have a new place to hang out and have fun.

A new playground has been unveiled at Hanson Park, with $10,000 coming from the White Valley Parks, Recreation and Culture Advisory Committee and the remainder raised by the community.

“There is a group of young moms and dads out there,” said Tannis Nelson, manager of community services.

“They did it in a fairly quick fashion — about nine to 12 months.”
