Groundbreaking ceremony planned for new playground in Little Falls

The city of Little Falls, in conjunction with the Youth Task Force Committee, will hold a groundbreaking ceremony Friday, at 3:30 p.m., for the “Taylor Chebet Twitchell Playground.” The playground will be located on the property donated to the city by the Minnesota Department of Transportation, just off Edmund Street, northeast of Little Falls (behind the Living Hope Assembly of God Church).

The city of Little Falls received a $100,000 donation from Paul and Emily Twitchell to go toward playground equipment at the proposed splash pad and all wheel skate park site. The donation was made by the couple in memory of their infant daughter, Taylor Chebet Twitchell, who passed away at birth. The playground will be named after Taylor. The Twitchells will be in Little Falls for the groundbreaking ceremony.

The Mayor’s Youth Task Force will also unveil the playground design at that time. All area residents are invited to come to the groundbreaking ceremony.
