New playscape ready to be unveiled


By Charles Sercombe
Hamtramck’s newly revamped playscape in the front portion of Veterans Park is getting the grand treatment this Saturday morning.
That’s when the city’s Parks Conservancy will host a ribbon cutting and grand opening.
Officially, the playscape area is now being called the Elaine and Roger Zatkoff Playground.
Roger Zatkoff was a star football player for Hamtramck High School back in the day, and his family legacy fund paid for the new playscape.
The Conservancy says the playscape “will be a high quality, modern, safe, and fun set of play structures especially designed for younger children. Features will include climbers, tunnels, slides, swings, and sun shades.”
It went on to say:
“An educational panel describing the importance to the development of children using all their senses will be prominently displayed. In addition to providing enjoyment for children and families, the playscapes selected are shown to contribute to whole-body strength and aerobic workouts for their users, which aid in kids’ healthy development.”
The grand opening is Saturday (June 15) at 10:30 a.m. Veterans Park is located at 8648 Jos. Campau.
