Kids in Muenster now have a new playground facility to play on for the summer months.

Construction on the playground wrapped up on Tuesday, with only the sand left to be dumped in.

Charmaine Baril of the Muenster Playground Committee explains who helped make the new playground possible.

"The build up was a volunteer committee to raise the money and do grant work. Members of the community all came together to build it with 1 Stop Playgrounds as the leader of it."

Baril says the former structure was showing its age, making the new build necessary

"The old playground was over 35 years old, it was a wooden structure, it was coming apart, nails were coming up," she noted.

Fellow committee member Krissy Essar adds that a playground accessible to everyone is important.

"We needed a wheelchair accessible playground as well."

Fundraising for the playground started two years ago, with the ground work being done on July 10.

The new playground is located near the Muenster School.
