More than 100 Unalaskans attended the grand opening of the new Town Park playground Saturday, July 15, starting at 5:30 p.m. The opening included several speeches by contributors to the new park, as well as a ribbon-cutting ceremony and community barbecue.
The event began as Director of the City of Unalaska Department of Parks, Culture, and Recreation Roger Blakeley gave a quick welcome message and introduced Mayor Frank Kelty.
"This park is very different than what we had before. It's safer, and it just really looks great," said Kelty.
