Putting Down the Hammers

After weeks of sawing, hammering, and shoveling, construction at Lubbock's Legacy Play Village is finally over and the gates to the new attraction were brought down Sunday. Even the smallest volunteers celebrated the final day at the play village with a run through the chain-linked fence.

Volunteers picked up their tools for the last time Sunday morning and continued to bang away until 5pm Sunday evening when all the building supervisors packed-up to return to New York. The kids NewsChannel 11 spoke to said they are really excited about Lubbock's new playground.

"It's cool, it took a lot of hard work but it was really fun," said Jordan who was a volunteer.

"Really fun, this is like huge inside. It's like really big," said Josh, a Legacy Play Village volunteer.

An agreement back in September between the Lubbock City Council and the friends of Legacy Play Village assured everyone will be allowed to play for free at the 23,000 square foot playground.
