Back in June, the mayor, council members, and Park Board celebrated the second annual Community Fun Day with the rededication of Jamestown Community Park on Adams Street. Jamestown Community Library and other local organizations attended, with food and fun activities for all.
The rededicated park features a special area for smaller children with new playground equipment such as a treehouse tube slide, a small play structure, spring rides, and a merry-go-round. Swings, a green space, picnic pavilion, and paved basketball courts are all available. Modern playground design can also incorporate unique sound instruments in a musical space. The Community Park includes chimes and timpani for kids of all ages to enjoy.
For the rededication, Uhl’s Market donated hot dogs, sub sandwiches, snacks, and condiments. The Village also gave away one boy’s bike and one girl’s bike during the event.
Our library Book Bike was set up with lots of giveaways (including cowbells)! Library aides Ray and Emma helped kids decorate and make their own buttons. They also taught kids how to program Colby the Robot Mouse, a STEM toy you can check out with your library card.
Jamestown can be proud of its newly revitalized community park, made possible by the Village Council and the Jamestown Park Committee—a group of concerned citizens who wanted to see the park saved when it fell into disrepair. The Village is fortunate to have such a beautiful park thanks to a group of concerned citizens and officials who made it happen.
