The grand opening for the new playground equipment at Ann Dorsey Hodgdon Park scheduled for tonight has been postponed due to inclement weather. The event will be rescheduled.
Girl Scout Troop 9012 chose the equipment for the playground over about 20 different proposals and also chose the colors, blue and gray. The playground includes slides, climbing wall, dome climber, spinning seats and a fish-shaped tunnel. The new playground cost a little more than $68,000. There is also a new shelter, picnic tables, sidewalks and basketball court. The 11-acre park, which opened in 1974, is located at Rock and Section Streets.
