Playscape at park has been installed
This past Saturday at the Rocksprings City Park construction of a playscape took place. The project was funded using a $10,000 grant from the Edwards County Economic Development Corporation with added money from the City of Rocksprings. Joseph Frerich and son Micah Frerich donated their time and labor, using some of their own employees, as well as the materials for installation of the playscape. Assistant Public Works Director Mike Sanchez of the City of Rocksprings also joined in on the labor. As per Mayor LaWanda Goller, a representative from the company of which the playscape came was there to supervise and provide construction instructions. City Secretary Pam Chennault, who is also of Family Wild Game Processing, donated venison sausage to the crew for breakfast.
Sand was purchased to use as the ground covering for the playscape as protection. Mayor LaWanda Goller, who was also present for the construction, commented that this project is geared “more for the little children than for the big children,” but, she further noted, “we have hopes” of adding additional structures in the future. “It all depends on the money,” she added.
A resident of Edwards County, Joseph Frerich’s intentions were to be active in the community, contribute to improving the community and making Rocksprings more kid friendly.
