PAULDING - A community group that plans to build a children's play area has set Oct. 17-21 for construction at Lafountain Park, adjacent to the village swimming pool.
The idea, proposed in the spring, has blossomed into a $90,000 project that includes a fund for maintenance.
The proposed playground will measure 11,000 square feet and will be constructed with volunteer labor.
Paulding has contracted with Leathers and Associates, which specializes in community-built playgrounds. The playground was designed based on ideas submitted by children in this community, which is about 65 miles southwest of Toledo.
