LEESVILLE, La. (AP) - The City of Leesville is seeking volunteers to help build a playground for Jubilee Park.

The city awarded a $15,000 grant last year for the play spot’s construction. The grant, funded through Dr Pepper Snapple Group and nonprofit KaBOOM!, requires that the playground be built by volunteers who plan, design, raise funds and build it.

The start date for the project has been set tentatively for May 9.

The Leesville City Council in February selected Kincade Recreation Equipment of Livingston, Texas, as the most cost-effective supplier for the playground equipment.

Anyone interested in volunteering should contact Natasha Wilkerson at 337-239-2444.
