Butterfly Kisses play park nears completion

Posted: Updated:

A Lee County special needs play park is under construction, thanks to Pepsi and hundreds of volunteers.

Construction crews leveled off the field beside the School Administration building for the Butterfly Kisses play park.

They drilled 62 holes for equipment that will be installed Saturday. More than 200 volunteers will start arriving around 9:00 to begin the assembly. It's expected to take most of the day.

Traci Henry says it wouldn't have happened without Reeves Construction which donated equipment and labor.

"We've been wanting to help out in the community for a while, Reeves has, so this was a good opportunity. We do a lot in Lee County so it seemed like a good project for us," said Reeves Construction Project Engineer Will Avera.

The group won a $50,000 grant from the Pepsi Refresh Foundation to pay for the playground equipment. Meatslangers and Momma's Pizza donated food for tomorrow's effort.

 The cement will need 48-hours to dry, so it will be Monday before children can enjoy the playground.
