MONTICELLO, Iowa (KCRG) – Wednesday evening at 5 p.m. people can take part in a ribbon cutting and celebration for a new playground in memory of a young boy.

Plans have been in the works for more than a year for the Austin Smith Inclusive Playground. The celebration starts at 5 with a dinner, and the ribbon cutting is set for 6 p.m. On Thursday the playground will fully open for children to use it.

It’s a playground that has something for every kid, no matter their abilities, with accessible equipment, musical toys and areas that spark a child’s imagination.

Donors and sponsors contributed $450,000 for the project in honor of a local superhero.
