The work has been going on for two years, and now the City of Hamilton is ready to celebrate a re-opening of American Legion Park on South 2nd Street.

Saturday, July 13, Mayor Jerry Steele and City Council members will be at the park from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to show off the new splash deck for the kids, along with renovated and re-roofed restrooms, shade structures, playground equipment, new trees and lawn, and handicapped accessible sidewalks.

There will be free refreshments and commemorative gifts for those attending.

The event is happening during the weekly Hamilton Farmers Market on Bedford Street.
