"Residents from the respective neighborhoods
joined us Saturday morning. When we re-opened
the first group of tot lots last October, the
reception we received at each the site was most
rewarding. To see the joy on the children's faces
as they viewed the big toys, swings, creative
play structures and exploration pieces for the
first time was an experience worth repeating.
As for those residents whose ideas were incorporated
in the plan, the park's unveiling was a proud
moment," Mayor Carol Klatt noted.
Bauman Landscape Inc., a Richmond-based firm,
was awarded the construction project last June.
The five tot lots re-opened last October are Cameo,
Canterbury, Hampshire, Camelot and Longview.
The $2 million project is the first to be completed
in the city's five-year $40 million capital improvement
