LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - This is a news release from Lamar County Parks and Recreation.
During a pre-construction meeting held on February 19 between Lamar County and Floore Contractors, Inc., closing J's Place playground during the construction of Backstrom Park was discussed.
After lots of deliberation, it was concluded that the playground would need to be closed during construction for safety reasons. With heavy equipment in and around the playground area it would be to much of a liability for the contractor to assume if the playground was to remain open during the construction period.
The playground will be closed starting on March 16th and will remain closed for approximately 90 days. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but the safety of the children is our main priority.
