Ridge Ferry Park playgrounds getting a new update, work scheduled to begin Monday

Ridge Ferry Park is on the verge of getting a new update as part of the 2017 SPLOST package. Parks and Recreation crews will begin removing the old playground on Monday, Aug. 3. A design for the new playground has been chosen and once the old one is removed, work will begin on preparing the site for the new playground. Construction of the new playground should be done by late fall, if the weather cooperates.
