HANNIBAL, Mo. — A grand opening for new playground equipment installed at Ann Dorsey Hodgdon Park will be at 5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 12. Members of Girl Scout Troop 9012 will cut the ribbons to the slides.
Joel Booth from Farmers and Merchants Bank and Trust will share the historic contribution that Ann Dorsey Hodgdon made in Hannibal.
The Girl Scout troop chose the equipment for the playground from approximately 20 different proposals and also chose the color scheme of blue and gray. The playground has slides, a climbing wall, dome climber, spinning seats and a fish-shaped tunnel. The cost of the new playground was a little more than $68,000. The park also has a new shelter, picnic tables, sidewalks and basketball court.
The 11-acre park, which opened in 1974, is at Rock and Section Streets.
