The City of Clovis would like to invite the public to a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the construction of a new playground at Dennis Chavez Park. The ceremony is scheduled for 2:00p.m., Thursday, February 17, 2022. The new playground, which cost approximately $104,598.78, was funded through capital outlay funds received during previous New Mexico Legislative Sessions. The City of Clovis applies for playground improvements each year to routinely improve its parks.
“We would like to thank our state legislators for prioritizing Clovis’ parks, and we are fortunate to partner with them on this endeavor,” remarked Commissioner Fidel Madrid, who also serves as the Chair of the Parks, Recreation and Beautification Committee.
Parks and Recreation Director Russell Hooper also commented on the playground’s construction. “The new playground at Dennis Chavez Park is part of a playground renewal program to help reinvigorate the parks and gradually upgrade the equipment. We prioritize the renovation of our playgrounds in order to both maintain a high standard of safety and improve quality of life for local youth.”
