River's Edge Kid Park Back Up and Running

The new equipment and the fall colors made Smith Park shine today.
Civitan sign remains in place.
A couple of weeks ago, I noted that the old Civitan Club children's area of Smith Park (in Roanoke's River's Edge complex) had been ripped up so its aging slides, rides and other goodies could be replaced. It has been replaced now and it is gorgeous. It was dedicated today by the Civitans and kids were on the equipment minutes later.

Thank you, Civitan Club, for giving moms, dads and their little ones a first-class place to play.

Meanwhile, the Civitan park was not the only upfit. The skateboard park under the Wasena Bridge was also given new surfaces. I wondered the other day, as I passed it on a greenway walk, if that was going to happen soon. It was looking shabby and even dangerous.

Renovations at the skateboard park.
