The children’s playground located next to the Cassville Aquatic Center has been closed to allow the construction of a new playground surface using recycled tires. The project is primarily funded by a $30,000 grant from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ Solid Waste Management Program administers this grant program to divert scrap tires from landfills and illegal dumps by promoting end-uses for scrap tires.
The playground is expected to reopen by the end of October. For more information on this project or Cassville municipal parks contact the Public Works Director at 847-4441.
