Kids Enjoy New Park in Wilmington

APRIL 7, 2006 -- A playground at Halyburton Park will offer a place for area kids to play. The park opened a playground for very young children a year and a half ago, but now there's something for kids of all ages.

The new playground opened Friday morning and is geared towards children ages five through 12. The new equipment is already proving very popular. There's a pole to slide down, climbing equipment, and the swings are always a favorite.

Many kids were using the equipment for the first time and say they're excited to have more choices.
