Bill Conkle with Friends of Jefferson Park sends word that Jefferson Park will be receiving new playground equipment the week of the May 15-20, with an estimated dismantle/install of the new equipment the week of May 22-26. This project should be finished by the second week of June.

The park will be receiving 2 new play structures, one designed for 2-5 year-old children, the other for 5-12 year-old children. The current swing set will remain.

The 2-5 year-old set is designed to look like a train and will bear the engine markings of C&O 231, buried under the park in the train tunnel collapse in 1925.
