Students to bid farewell to old playground

by Carolina King

Ouray students are preparing to bid farewell to their 30-year-old playground. On May 29, they will gather to say their goodbyes to the playground and take part in a “project launch” celebration complete with ice cream and popsicles.
Students will also have the opportunity to give input on the final details of the actual play equipment.
Construction will begin on May 31, starting with the wall at the west end of the playground. Proposals from local stone-building, excavation and landscaping professionals for the project were due on May 8. By mid-June project manager Danika Gilbert expects to be “dialing in details,” and Aug. 26 is already set for the grand-opening party.
