PROSPECT — It takes a lot of work to build a playground.

A group of parent volunteers found that out Saturday morning as they braved the rain to set up playground equipment at Moraine Elementary School, 350 N. Main St.

The equipment replaces 20-year-old metal domes the students weren't allowed to play on for safety reasons, according to Gina McCloskey of Prospect, a member of the school's Parent Teacher Organization and one of the organizers of the playground upgrade.
