Warrenton - Warrenton Grade School students have a new playground thanks to the efforts of several local people.

Warrenton's parent group Parents and Teachers Helping Schools raised about $15,000 over four years of taco feeds and silent auctions. Quincy-Robinson, a local foundation, also donated about $15,000.

About 30 students from Tongue Point Job Corps installed the new equipment recently.

"It's a great opportunity to get the students off (the) center and out on to the job site and dealing with the real problems that come up," supervisor Doug West said.

The equipment has several levels and several stations so the broad range of Warrenton students can play there, PATHS president Bonnie Ball said. The playground also has a wheel-chair accessible portion.

"We're just trying to bring our playground up-to-date so our kids can enjoy being here," Ball said.
