Lassen County Times/Westwood PinePress Tuesday, May 1,2007 11B By Barbara France Managing Editor Hopefully by summer, tod- dlers will have new play equipment to enjoy At it Wednesday, April 18 meeting, the Susanville City Council approved the con- struction of Peggy's Playground in Riverside Park. The play equipment is designed for 2- to 5-year-old children and looks like a fire engine. It includes a slide, ladders and hanging bars. The toddler play area will be built behind the exiting playground in a small earth depression near the picnic tables and on the Limoneria Street side of the park. "Peggy loved children," said Councilmember Doug Savers of his late wife. "She told me if something happened to her to do some- thing in her memory of the children." Peggy died several years ago and her family set up a memorial trust in her name and the playground will be constructed in her memory The estimated total cost of the playground is $13,600. The Peggy Savers Trust donated $3,000. "Peggy loved children. She told- me if something happened to her to do something in her memory of the children." " Doug Savers Councilmember The rest of the money comes from a per Capita Grant and Recreation Round- up. According to Director of Community Services Rob Hill, the 2002 Per Capita Bond Grant has $7,100 and the city must use it or give it back. The bulk of the grant was used to purchase land on the Sierra Road site to be used for recreation purposes. The other $3,500 comes from the Recreation Round- up program. City water, geothermal and natural gas customers can choose to round up their bills to the nearest dollar. All the change is then placed into the round-up fund to be used for new recreation within the city. This is the first use of the round-up money Mayor Pro tem Rocky Joy said he thinks the playground is a good addition to the wide- ly used park. He said his preschool-aged twins have probably visited every park- between here and the coast and knows the boys will enjoy the park. Hill said the location for the park is highly suited for a tod- dler park because of the natu- ral indentation in the earth. Hopefully by summer, toddlers and preschoolers will have a new playground such asthis one. The equipment will be Installed at Riverside Park. The area will be called Peggy's Playground in memory of Peggy Sayers who died several years ago. Peggy loved children, said her husband Doug, who is a member of the Susanville City Council. Sayers was instrumental in making sure money set in a trust was given to the project.
