Several kids kept playing on the new play ground equipment Friday night even as the fireworks display was going on in the background on the other side of the park. hose fireworks had been reschueduled from July 4th to July 9th.
The Little Mr. & Miss Firecracker Contest was held after the ribbon cutting Friday with winners at several age brackets. This young winner posed with Bailey Chamber (2010 Miss Collinsville Teen).
City officials, park designers and contractors posed for a ceremonial ribbon cutting for the major park improvements which were opened to the public in this past week. Improvements included the spray pad, playground equipment, skate park, rest rooms, trees, benches, entry sign, etc ... which are funded by an increase in the city sales tax rate.
This skateboarder offered an "intentional" wipeout for a chance to get his photo online (which worked) ... but it still looked painful. The skate park features were packed with kids on skate boards, skates and bikes Friday during the delayed Independence Day activities. The skate area was officially opened to the kids last Sunday but many had made a few "trial" runs while the park was "closed" for construction in recent weeks.
The new spray pad was constantly full of kids except when the speeches were being made and then when the timer shut off the water for the evening at 9pm. That same timer turns the water on at 9am daily. This new park feature has been available to the community since Tuesday July 6th.
The new basketball court (relocated from the area now occupied by the new playground) also drew a nice crowd of players Friday adjacent to the skate area..
People were everywhere in the park and just kept coming as the skys darkened and fireworks time approached.
They walked in, they rode the buses from CHS, and a few even parked in the park, but nice sized crowd enjoyed a wonderful evening at Collinsville City Park.
The Collinsvile Fire Department was in charge of transporting, planting and finally igniting the fireworks in the park Friday evening.
In line for the balloon man.
