LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Lafayette Parks Foundation is thankful for a new gift they received. The Lafayette Kiwanis Club gave the foundation $15,500 to fund a new musical playground at Armstrong Park.
Harmony Park is the new musical playground located at Armstrong Park. It features four different pieces of musical instruments.
Lafayette Parks and Recreation Marketing Manger, Samantha Haville, says this is a great addition to Armstrong Park.
"Each piece of this playground equipment is actually a separate musical instrument," said Haville. "So we have four instruments that children of all ages and abilities can enjoy."
Haville says the most exciting part of the musical equipment is the fact that each piece is designed so there's no wrong notes.
"Regardless of your musical talent, you're going to sound great when you come out and play these pieces," said Haville.
However due to the coronavirus restrictions, the playground equipment is not officially open. The Parks Foundation has been following Governor Eric Holcomb's Back on Track Indiana Plan.
"We do ask for everyone patience as we do have to wait a little bit longer until we can safely open the playground," said Haville. "As soon as we can safely reopen our playground, we plan to do so."
Lafayette Kiwanis Club member Bob Miles has been a member of the club for 49 years.
"I've been working with children all over the country, so it's very heartwarming to be able to do something for the community," said Miles.
As of now, Haville and Miles are hoping Harmony Park Playground will get to open on June 14.
