Fifth graders from Bay Haven School of Basics Plus ran, swung and spun at Pioneer Park today as they celebrated the grand opening of a new playground.

The city cut the ribbon on the playground today, replacing equipment destroyed in a fire in February. Although the party responsible for that fire was never identified, city parks staff said the process of installing a new playground provided an opportunity to upgrade amenities at the park, located near Cocoanut Avenue and 12th Street.

The treehouse-themed playground includes slides, swings, climbing areas, a spherical spinning device, musical equipment and more.
