It was too much temptation.

The new playground equipment at Hamilton's Legion Park was installed last week and the inspection cleared it for use this week.

So, instead of waiting for a late delivery of a shade structure at the park, the city decided to go ahead and let 'em play!

As of Thursday, the Legion Park is open to the public. Now, a couple of cautionary notes - the new grass is still fragile, so use the new sidewalk to get to the playground.

By, by all means, get your kids and explore the spiderweb, the climbing hills, the swings and more at the brand new playground. And try out the new slide.

Officials say the shade structure has been delayed at the factory, and is expected to arrive before the middle of July. Once it's here, the set-up will be fairly easy, since the footings are already poured and ready to go.
