THE Children’s Park Playground at the perfect time has been re-painted by the navy from USCG Cutter Munro.
The final touches to the playground were made yesterday when the Navy known as the Coast Guard Team re- painted the fencing that kept the public safe from the main road.
Although the playground is open to members of the public, there has been no eyes set on the ground to beautify it or make it a more welcoming, clean and safe playing ground for the children.
The Coast Guard Team worked tirelessly to re- beautify the fence around the Children’s Park.
The focus was on creating a playground that is catered for all ages and abilities.
“It’s great that we’re able to give the community access to a clean and attractively looking playground. It’s a fantastic addition to a wonderful park, something to be enjoyed by many”, a Coast Guard Team rep commented.
The playground at Children’s Park, Rove is a well-known playground for kids and families living in the city.
The USCG Cutter Munro is a ship of the United States Coast Guard named after Douglas Munro, the only Coast Guardsman to be awarded the Medal of Honor. Douglas Munro was killed outside of Point Cruz (Yacht club) during the Battle of Guadalcanal. He died saving the lives of his comrades.
The USCG Cutter Munro is currently in Honiara. A reception was held last night on board the ship for dignitaries, diplomats and invited guests to meet the US Coast Guards.
