Anthem News is reporting that the gates to the reconstructed playground and splash pad at Anthem Park will be open for business after a ribbon-cutting ceremony this coming Saturday morning during Anthem Autumnfest 2014. The new, shorter towers mimic the originals but using better materials to withstand our harsh desert environment. While the new structure dose not match the original’s skyline, it offers “significantly more built-in and stand alone play features.”
