Community Build Comes Together In Shakopee
After an ambitious, summer-long fundraising effort, the new inclusive playground at Lions Park in Shakopee is near completion! On October 22nd, we joined the City of Shakopee, Shakopee Lions, and over 70 community volunteers to build the new space. With beautiful weather and amazing support, the majority of the equipment was assembled in just one day. Following the completion of construction, the city is looking to hold a grand opening in late Spring 2017.
