Town of Silt Public Works crews have finished installing a new playground at Flying Eagle Park at 16th and Grand Streets, adjacent to the Town's soccer fields. The playground is designed for ages 5 to 12. Town staff did all the work associated with installing the new features, including removal of asphalt and dirt, installation of small block wall, concrete work, installation of the playground equipment and the washed rock for fall protection. The cost of the project totaled $25,000 and was paid out of the Town's Park Impact Fee Fund. The Town was responding to requests from folks in the neighborhood who pointed out the need for a playground on the east end of Town.
