Huge Crowd Turns Out For Farmington Park Grand Opening

(Farmington) Hundreds of people turned out Monday for a ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremony for the new, all-inclusive playground at Engler Park in Farmington. Mineral Area College Basketball Coach Luke Strege was the master of ceremonies for the event. He says this playground was a long time coming.

Strege says this is something very personal for him.

Teri Morton is also a part of Play It Forward In The Parkland. She says she had a lot of emotions watching the park open up.

The Play It Forward group and the Farmington Lions Club raised over $200,000 for the project. The park is over 20,000 square feet.
