New playground dedicated in honor of outstanding community member

MARION COUNTY, W. Va. (WDTV) - The Elks Lodge 388 dedicated a playground Thursday that was three years in the making.

The addition to bower's park included a swing set, new jungle gym, picnic tables,and the paving of a basketball court.

The funds for the park came through grants and the partnership with the Mannington park board and the Marion County commission.
