New Playground Opens In Syracuse

The city of Syracuse has new playground thanks to the efforts of a few local residents.

The city and those residents worked with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources to get a grant, which helped fund the city playground.

Officials say they used recycled rubber as a ground base to keep kids safe.

The city says the project would not have been possible without the help of residents who put in labor, time and effort to complete the building of the playgrounds.
