Bristol playground almost done

BRISTOL — Dozens of volunteers came out to help construct the new playground on the Bristol green Oct. 4 and 5, but a delayed shipment prevented the crew from completing the project.
“Each day, 20 to 40 people came and we did as much as we could,” said Jill Kopel, a project organizer and Bristol parent. “We’re very close.”
Volunteers could not complete the monkey bars or slide because support posts for those structures have not arrived, Kopel said on Friday. The critical pieces are presently en route from the Midwest, and were expected within the week. Once the pieces arrive, workers can finish the playground quickly, Kopel said.
“As soon as the parts come, we’ll be done in an afternoon,” she said, undoubtedly welcome news to children living in town.
