PLAYGROUND RENOVATION AT CHASTAIN COMPLETE
Following an extensive redevelopment of the original Chastain Park playground, Phase II of the capital campaign Play Chastain was unveiled by the Chastain Park Conservancy during a recent ribbon-cutting ceremony. “The rehabilitation and expansion from 10,000 to 40,000 square feet was necessary because the playground equipment was 14 years old, and the number of children it served significantly increased,” says Randee Kelly, communications director for the Chastain Park Conservancy. New features include a climbing structure, a sensory tunnel, additional musical equipment, toddler playhouses and shade structures. Phase II was funded through a $100,000 Legacy Grant from Park Pride.
