A Lubbock Legacy Is In Need Of Repair

A Lubbock legacy is in need of some repairs and a little TLC. We're talking about The Legacy Play Village and it's leaving some parents concerned about their children's safety. Because of that the chairman of the playground is calling for a public work day to help fix up the village.

"Oh my gosh! It is wonderful! Three years long we've dreamt of this and look at all of these kids playing. It's fantastic," those were the words of Lubbock mom Julia Camp on December 20, 2002 - the day Legacy Play Village opened.

But since then those good times have taken their toll. "We like to come here, I just have to be careful when we do come," said Lubbock mom Leann Flores.

Flores brings her kids to the village about twice a month and she remembers nicer times. "When they first opened it everything was brand new," Flores said.

But despite the village's wear and tear, Flores's family loves the place too much to stop coming and she hopes Legacy Play Village will follow in the footsteps of other Lubbock parks. "I've noticed they've started to improve most of the parks here around Lubbock and this is one that they should come back to because a lot of people come here," Flores said.

And Flores's wish and the wishes of so many other parents will come true in about two weeks. There is a public work day to fix up the village. Everyone is urged to come help fix up the play village on June 28th. Food and drinks will be provided as the community comes together to paint, hammer, rebuild and just fix up the place for Lubbock's kids.

If you'd like to help, be at the play village between 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 28, ready to work.
