Greentree's Accessible Playground Project has nearly reached their goal.

The Rotary Club of Drumheller contributed to the purchase of the Playbooster Rollerslide.

"We were given a rotary grant from the Rotary Club here in Drumheller specifically for the roller slide that we are putting into the playground," said Nikki Isley with the Greentree Accessible Playground Project. "It's $10,767 exactly and they bought the roller slide for our project."

"Well basically we are very thankful for all the support as it's getting us closer to our goal," noted Isley. "Obviously construction has started but in order to actually finish the project as scheduled we still need about $4,000."

Isley mentioned that a rubber surfacing is to be installed as well.

"The slide specifically is a really exciting piece," added Isley. "They have one at the Children's Hospital."

Although construction for the project has begun, there has been no set date as to when the project will be completed.
