MARSHALL, Il (WTWO/WAWV) — On Wednesday afternoon, kids in Marshall took advantage of the nice weather to enjoy renovations at Collier Park.

It recently re-opened after getting some new additions, including a balance beam, new playground equipment and a newly cemented walkway.

Mayor John Hasten said the city has a cycle system to evaluate each park, and officials look at the safety equipment and for ways to update the facility.

“Marshall is focused on the youth. We put more money in our Parks Department this past appropriation, and we plan to do it again next appropriation for the youth of the community,” Hasten said.

The park is located on 14th Street near the city garage.
