Phase 2 of the Bellevue State Park Playground ProjectOn Friday, October 28, 2005 the old wood train was removed and the area excavatedfor the new train. In addition, the ground pattern for the train and play panels was laidout. More than twenty holes were dug for the poles and ten tons of stone was spreadfor the train base.
On Saturday, October 29 and Sunday October 30, the construction crew installedall materials, mixed and set concrete in place and spread another ten tons of stoneand twenty-five cubic yards of mulch around the train set and play panels.
Over the three days of construction, fifteen Lions participated in the project.
Local residents asked the Lions what was going on. This was a great opportunityto explain what Lions are all about. Potential new members?
The new playground facilities were functional on Monday, October 31 and childrenwere observed climbing on and through the train set that day. In addtition, the chimes,bells and drums were heard throughout the park.
