HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) – The City of Huber Heights made a dream come true for local families.
Some local children and their parents put in the work to get new playground equipment built at Twin Creeks Park.
The group contacted Parks and Recreation about the park’s lack of play equipment.
City staff then looked into updating the park.
With the help of a $40,000 Montgomery County Solid Waste Incentive grant, Huber Heights was able to fulfill the wish.
“The neighbors helped too. The kids came over, they did some painting. They have ownership. They know that they helped, and that’s good when you can get the young folks involved at an early age. They’ll always know that they helped with this and they’ll make sure that it stays nice,” said Jan Vargo, Huber Height City Council.
Twin Creeks Park is located in southern Huber Heights on Leston Avenue.
The Montgomery County Solid Waste District sponsors the grant to promote recycling every year.
