Edwardsville Mayor Hal Patton, city officials, donors and children of the community who will benefit from The R.P. Lumber Center will break ground Tuesday on Edwardsville’s new recreational development. The event is a reschedule of an earlier date postponed by rain.
The center is part of the city of Edwardsville’s “A Better Place to Play” campaign launched in 2015 to raise money for the development of three new parks – the completed Leon Corlew Park and splash pad, Plummer Family Sports Park and now a recreational complex and ice rink.
The general public is invited to the event, set for 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 13, at the future site, behind Edwardsville High School off Tiger Drive and Governors’ Parkway in Edwardsville. Parking for the event is available behind the high school.
