PRAGUE – The new playground equipment for the village park in Prague has been ordered.

And, while the Prague Improvement and Maintenance Project committee awaits its arrival and a warm day to install it, more funds continue to come in for the project.

The Seven Mile Ridez recently donated $1,500 for the park project.

“It’s part of our mission to support our community,” said Car Club President Tyler Wesley. “We wanted to do something for the community.”

The club’s donation will help to get new playground equipment installed at the park.

The Prague Improvement and Maintenance Project committee has been working for the past several years to raise funds and make improvements at the park.

The new $130,000 playground will replace playground equipment that has been in use since the 1970s.

Prague Improvement and Maintenance Project Committee Chairman Jamey Hanis said the car club’s donation is just another example of how supportive the community has been of the playground project.

The new equipment has been ordered from Creative Sites. Hanis said it will be late April or early May before installation will be able to happen.

The overnight temperature will need to be at least 45 degrees for the rubber playground floor to be put in place.

Hanis said the playground company will provide oversight during installation, but community volunteers will be needed to put the equipment together.

More plans will be announced once the equipment arrives and an installation date is set, but committee members want to be able to turn assembly into a community celebration.

After the playground is up, Hanis said the goal is to have some type of community party.

The Prague Improvement and Maintenance Project committee is also in planning mode for several other upcoming community events.

The Annual Bohunk Billiards will take place on Feb. 25. Planning also continues for this summer’s Beer Barrel Days.
