Medina cuts the ribbon on new playground
MEDINA – Village officials were joined by some local children at 5 p.m. today to cut the ribbon on a new playground at Butts Park. Dallas Kepner joins Mayor Mike Sidari, right, in cutting the ribbon.

The Medina Department of Public Works and community volunteers did a lot of the construction work for the new playground. The DPW continued to work on the site on Tuesday and this morning.
The new setup replaces a wooden playground, which was rotted and in rough shape.
The new playground and wood chips cost just under $40,000. Sidari said the volunteer labor from the community saved several thousand dollars for the installation.
