Playground dedication in Jenkins

Several residents and government officials from the City of Jenkins gathered on Saturday, June 16th to officially open and dedicate the new city playground located in Veteran’s Park along Hwy 371.

The project was a long one said Mayor Jon Lubke, who said the idea to replace and upgrade the park and playground began in the early 2000s.
