Kids in Dent have a nice new place to slide, climb and monkey around.

After two years of fundraising, the Dent Community Club has installed new playground equipment at the town’s baseball park.


Featuring three slides, modern-style monkey bars, a built-in tic-tac-toe game and lots of climbing areas, the brightly-colored equipment was put together by community club members, Dent firefighters and other volunteers.
