Cooleemee playground a hit

Published 9:38 am Thursday, October 12, 2017

The Cooleemee Playground was updated with a couple new pieces of equipment recently.

The new tetherball equipment has been a great success. The string that holds the ball has broken twice already and had to be replaced. Two people play the game against each other so that means there is usually a line of kids waiting to play.  That’s the only downside to this game but maybe we can purchase another one or something similar.

A new swing was installed and a much needed handicap swing has come into good use.  Sometimes girls will play “mama” and buckle a friend in the seat and pretend to take care of her.  The protective buckled harness is sturdy and easy to use.    

Every Friday, Cooleemee Elementary School has Friday Fun Day’s and they love spending time at the playground.

New adult chin up bars are located between the basketball court and the playground to accommodate older youth and adults.
