(BEDFORD) - Maple Park will have new playground equipment by early October.

Bedford Urban Enterprise Association will have a grand opening once the equipment is in place.

The BUEA was going to sell the park at 415 J Street because of financial circumstances, but one local child convinced the group to reconsider.

An anonymous donor gave a generous contribution toward keeping the park and it was donated to the city.

In July, BUEA received a matching grant from Lawrence County Community Foundation for $4,200 and General Motors promised $5,000 toward the playground equipment.
