Freddy Perez and his City of Altus parks crews were out this week installing new playground. They are seen here with Children’s Specialties representative Chris Jones in the English Village Park putting in new slides. Perez said the new equipment replaces the old metal slides, merry-go-rounds and other equipment that can get hot during the summer months. “The new equipment is more safe for the kids,” said Perez. New equipment will also be going up soon in Indian Hills and Hightower Park.
