Race to Play to celebrate anniversary


Follow The Republic:


The Columbus Park Foundation and its partners will celebrate the one-year anniversary of a program to improve and sustain neighborhood parks on Thursday with free cookouts and activities at three city playgrounds.

Race to Play kicked off last May after making about $500,000 in improvements at Mead Village, Morningside, Pence Street and Ninth Street parks.

One year later, the public is invited to join the city and the program's sponsors at three of those parks Thursday afternoon for a reunion celebration, said April Williams, project and resource development director for the parks department.
