New playground at Roessler Park

They brought out the big scissors Wednesday night for the grand opening of a new playground at Roessler Park.

The city partnered with the SNOOPS neighborhood watch program to improve the park which is a block long. Funding for the improvements came from two grants that totaled up to $70,000. A new jogging and walking trail was also added to the park. "I'm just really super excited, the kids seem to really like it,” said Sarah Galloway. "I'm really glad that we were able to put such a nice playground, especially on the east side of town."  These park improvements are also part of the city's "Erie Refocused" initiative.
