Building a New Playground for Edwardsville
Building a New Playground for Edwardsville

SIUE Wrestlers

The SIUE wrestling team helped with the Edwardsville Rotary Club's playground construction on Tue., Sept. 17. The Rotary Club is coordinating this effort to rebuild the demolished playground at Township Park (AKA Airplane Park).  The playground is 12,000 square feet and being built this week to be completed by Sunday, Sept. 22.

The Cougars placed playground equipment around the site and filled 180 holes with vertical supports (pictured to the right). Each of the 15-foot long, composite wood posts will help support the playground.

During the remainder of this week, SIUE Greek organizations, student groups, and SIUE intercollegiate athletic teams will work alongside community volunteers to complete the project.
