The Granbury Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting and dedication last week commemorating the children’s area at the Jim Burks Firefighters Memorial Park near the hike and bike trail and Travis Street. Recent improvements include a covered area over the unique fire engine playground equipment, providing shade from the hot summer sun and protection from the elements.

The project committee members included Aaron McLain with the City Parks and Recreation Dept., Ron Berryman, J.C. Campbell and Julia Pannell.
