Monroe Co. playground 7 years in making opens


UNION (WVVA) -- Kids in Union, Monroe County will now have a playground to use anytime they want.

A grand opening for the Hawks Nest Recreational Park was held Thursday afternoon at Mountain View School.

The project was started seven years ago by a group of parents that wanted a place for their kids to play in Union. The only other playground kids had was the one at Mountain View School, but was not open to the public.

The group Our Kids Inc. held several fundraisers over the past few years to raise the $200,000 needed to fund the playground project.

The project is now on phase two which is the construction of basketball courts. The courts will be located next to the playground.
