NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans has reopened a playground closed since Hurricane Katrina hit the city in August 2005.
It took $833,000 in disaster grants, city bond money and money from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to rebuild Comiskey Park and Playground.
A news release says the basketball pavilion was rebuilt with new goals and lights, and the shared baseball diamond and football field has been re-graded and sodded.
The concession building was gutted and rewired, with a new roof.
There's new playground equipment on a rubber padded court, and there's a new fence around the whole park.
