With the blow of a whistle, the City of Jacksonville opens a new playground at Northeastern Park off Corbin Street.
It’s a playground for all children regardless of their ability, age or comfort-level.
Jacksonville Mayor Sammy Phillips says it’s a nice place for parents to bring their kids and feel safe.
“Already playing in this playing to beat the band out there so we hope it’ll get a lot of good use and hope parents bring their kids out to the park and let them play on,” said Phillips.
It took crews a few months to build the playground.
The estimated cost is $400,000.
The new playground is near the splash pad.
