The first holes were drilled yesterday morning for the new accessible playground at the Devlin Ball Park, behind Carmody Field. Playgrounds-R-Us drilled holes for an “oodle swing” as part of Phase 1 of the project initiated by the Emo and District Lions Club which will also include a large play-set and spinner. Organizers were pleased with all the help from volunteers and the extra assistance from Playground-R-Us a manufacture out Winnipeg for sending extra support. The park will not be wheelchair accessible until Phase 2 of the project which is scheduled to start next spring.
