Kids Kingdom at Buford Park will be closed to the public Friday, April 22 through Sunday, April 24, for repairs, Sulphur Springs officials report.
The Sulphur Springs Leadership Class has selected as a class service project the rehab of Mary Bonham’s Kids Kingdom in Buford Park. Friday and Saturday, April 22-23, have been designated as work days to re-stain all the wood in the park and Kids Kingdom and spread mulch.
The class is also planning to replace and/or repair the equipment, such as the handicap swing, chains, swings, tires, etc. for the playground, restore the ground mulch and install lighting for safety and security.
In readiness for the April 22-23 work days, an S&S crew began the process of restoring Kids Kingdom by making repairs to the wooden equipment, sawing, cutting replacing, securing piece in place and other renovations. The playground was also slated to be professionally power-washed to prepare for the staining.
The park will remain closed Sunday, April 24, 2022, to allow the playground to dry before children are permitted to play on it.
As was the case when an Adult Leadership Class undertook construct of Kids Kingdom 25 years ago, everyone is invited to help. Church and civic groups, as well as individuals, are encouraged to help with the project. To sign up to help, contact the Chamber at 903-885-8515 or [email protected].
