Meridian is only a few steps away from having the largest, all-inclusive playground in the state of Mississippi. Volunteers came out once more over the weekend and this week to work on the final touches in getting Jeannie’s Place at Planet Playground finished. The design team is finishing up their work, but project coordinator Julia Norman says they'll be reaching out through their Facebook page for the community for one final work stretch.
"We're getting through this phase right here, and then we're immediately going to set a mulching and fence picket day. We're going to reach out to the community again and say, 'come help us fix it.' So, we're just trying to get it to a manageable level. It's a big project, it's a huge playground, and it's such a great addition to our community. So, we are very committed to making sure it's finished correctly,” said Norman.
They will be making the announcement as soon as possible. Highland Park will also begin getting all-inclusive playground equipment in the near future.
