Sandusky city commissioners recently voted 7-0 to spend about $40,000 in grant funds for additional playground equipment at the Lasalle Street facility.
The playground, expected to arrive around summertime, complements existing equipment resembling rocks. Among the new features: logs shaped and spaced out like stairs, a tunnel kids can crawl in and a climbing course.
“The additional play equipment will allow children from ages 3 to 12 to actively play on these items” Sandusky chief planner Rebecca Corrigan said.
Meanwhile, Mills Street resident Dan Leavell recently asked commissioners if they could possibly install some benches around the new bike path.
Commissioners seemed receptive to the idea. Corrigan said there’s about $3,000 in leftover grant money to possibly spend on benches.
