Pond Cove School playground replacement begins with demolition June 29

Sufficient funds have been raised to allow construction of a new playground at Pond Cove School this summer.

The Pond Cove Playground Committee, an independent community organization, has announced that the existing playground is slated for demolition on Saturday, June 29, 2019. "Fantastic fundraising progress has allowed the school system to move forward with summer construction plans for the new Pond Cove Playground," says the committee's Facebook page.

"As with any construction project, the work may cause some minor inconveniences to the community," the post says.

The committee's website indicates $225,000 of the $300,000 goal has been raised. In February the town contributed $50,000 toward the goal, with a promise to match funds raised up to $50,000 before the end of the fiscal year July 1.
