Playground at Downs Park to be dedicated Saturday

April 18, 1997

Anne Arundel County Executive John G. Gary and Tom Donlin, acting director of the Department of Recreation and Parks, will dedicate a $65,000 playground at Downs Park at noon Saturday.

Betty Jansky, president of the Friends of Downs Park Inc., which raised $15,000 for the project, also will participate.

Downs Park opened in 1982. The original playground structure was wood and steel and had deteriorated because of heavy use and harsh weather.

All Recreation Inc. of Thurmont designed and built the play equipment out of treated steel and plastic.
