A play space in Newtown has been opened but is not fully completed. FunSpace II at Dickinson Memorial Park is a replacement of the Fun Space playground, which was torn down last year because of age and condition. That play space was constructed in 1989.
The new playground was dedicated at the end of July, though there are still some things to complete. The landscape design shows slides, a climbing tower, rope climbing and wooden ramps and tunnels among other features.
The Newtown Bee reports that the project cost about $800,000 and was paid for through Capital Improvement Plan funds and private donations.
