Warren County celebrates playground anniversary

The Warren County Parks and Recreation Department and Fantasyland Playground Committee celebrated the 20th Anniversary Celebration Ceremony for the playground on Commerce Avenue. The event took place April 14.

Guest speakers included Archie Fox, chairman of the Board of Supervisors; Tim Dar, mayor of the Town of Front Royal; Brooks Nanna, co-chairman of the Fantasyland Playground Committee; and Dan Lenz, director of Warren County Parke and Recreation.

Former committee members also were recognized.

The town and county collaborated in 1993 to build the wooden playground in Lions Park for area youth. Donations from area businesses and the community covered the $60,000 cost.

Part of Sunday's celebration included the completion of the Warren County Capital Facility Upgrades to the park system, including picnic tables, litter containers, dog potties, grills, benches and signs.
