Lansing Lions Club Playground Project nearing completion, finishing touches yet to be added before playground opens ...

The Lansing Lions Club Playground Project took a giant step forward this past weekend as more than 35 volunteers assisted with the installation of the facsimile of a Mississippi River Steamboat playground structure (pictured in progress below). The balance of the equipment is expected to arrive this Friday morning and by noon this Saturday the equipment, itself, should be installed. Further completion activity will include the need to place the 12-inch layer of wood chip base, benches, bicycle rack, sidewalks and a base for the handicap accessible picnic table under the playground shelter, and then the playground will reopen. Residents and visitors are asked to be patient and not cross the orange barrier fencing around the project which is in place for protection until the installation is complete.

Pictured above, the project also received a $1,000 boost this weekend from Lansing Cub Scout Pack 47. Pictured above are members of the local Cub Scout Pack presenting a donation check to Lansing Lions Club Playground Project Coordinator Arlen Wonderlich. The Lansing Lions Club appreciates all who have contributed both physically and financially to this large community project. Submitted photos.
