Glimer's New Community Playground Debuts

The brand new Gilmer Community Playground debuted today, and from swings, slides, and monkey bars, this playground has got it all.

It took Gilmer volunteers over a year to build the playground designed by kids, for kids.

We opened it Sunday evening at six and I heard more laughing and squealing from little kids than I'd heard out there in a long time, and it's just really amazing to see what a community can do when it comes together," said Gilmer Civic Center Director Bridget Fowler today.

Another interesting fact about the playground is that they have therapeutic swings for physically disabled children.

The Gilmer Community Center is open daily to anyone, young or old, who wants to play.
