Train arrives at Mercerdale Park

On Dec. 10, the long-awaited new train sculpture arrived and was lifted into place at the Mercerdale Park playground. Each section weighs 12,500 pounds and will be accessible to wheelchairs in the center. Other new playground equipment is slated to be delivered in mid-December, and the playground grand opening will likely be held in early 2022, according to the city. Photo courtesy of John Hamer
