LURAY — The Town of Luray’s Parks and Recreation Department will host a grand opening celebration for the installation of new “Imagination Station” playground equipment at 9 a.m. this Saturday, May 7 at Ralph Dean Park.
Over the last four months or so, crews have torn down the old wooden structure that was becoming more costly to maintain and potentially dangerous, and replaced it with a brand new maze of ladders, slides and swings.
The re-opening of the popular playground is also being co-sponsored by the Luray-Page County Chamber of Commerce, who will host a ribbon cutting at the event, and the Page Alliance for Community Action (PACA), who plans to help fund any additional needs at the playground.
Local officials are expected to make a few remarks prior to the ribbon cutting about the project, and free cupcakes and drinks will be available afterwards.
Ralph H. Dean Recreation Park is located at 625 Sixth Street in Luray.
