December 08, 2014

The new Lions Special Needs Playground in Heritage Park, 100 Park Ave., is set to be dedicated in a brief ceremony at 11 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 12.

The playground was recommended by the Capital Improvements Plan Committee and approved by the Belton City Council in February 2014.

Seventy-five percent of the funding for the project came from private donations. Lions Club International and the local chapter of Belton Lions Club gave a combined $150,000 toward the playground. The City contributed $50,000.
