Mill Creek MetroParks dedicates new playground in Youngstown

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) — Mill Creek MetroParks and Youngstown officials held a ribbon cutting Friday morning for the Julianna Kurinka Children’s Play Area at the park’s James L. Wick Recreation Area.

The project, a complete site redesign, consisted of numerous components, including demolition of existing infrastructure, adding and upgrading utilities, construction of new play areas, a perimeter concrete walk/curbing, new sand volleyball courts, installation of new site lighting and furnishings and rehabilitation of the Thomas J. Bresko Pavilion.

The new Children’s Play Area consists of three areas: Adventure Play Area, Sand Play Area and Tot Play Area. The proposed wet playground area will be constructed when the fundraising goal is met.

Donors to the project include the Julianna Kurinka Trust, Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley, J. Ford Crandall Memorial Foundation, Frank & Pearl Gelbman Foundation, Rotary Club of Youngstown, Thomases Family Endowment, and W. E. Bliss Foundation. Fundraising efforts also were held.
