LA VERGNE, Tenn. (WTVF) — After several weeks of renovations, the new playground at Veterans Memorial Park in La Vergne is ready for visitors.

The ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Saturday morning.

There are two new play areas, one for 2 to 5-year-olds, and one for older kids.

There are also swings, a zip line, and even a merry go round that is accessible for children with disabilities.

The improvements cost around $200,000 dollars.

City leaders say its a smart investment.

"This is part of our ongoing efforts to modernize the city's infrastructure, whether it is parks or roads and make the city a better place for everyone," said La Vergne Mayor Jason Cole

This is the second park in the city to get upgrades. The first was Mankin Park on Jefferson Pike.
