BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - Work on Blacksburg’s Hand in Hand playground is ahead of schedule.

Construction began March 1.

The town is working to update the 30-year-old playground.

Dean Crane, Blacksburg’s Director of Parks and Recreation, says the town is refurbishing all the personalized wooden pickets from the old playground and adding them in with new pickets people can buy.

“The construction is happening,” Crane said. “A lot of parts are coming in. Materials are coming in and we’re starting to refurbish the pickets and get the fence back up.”

A grand opening date is still being scheduled.
