Verndale's new north side playground, built by the Assembly of God church, is a work in progress but now functional and safe for kids to play in.


The Rev. Amos Self said that concerns had been expressed about kids on the north side of town needing to cross the busy four-lane U.S. Highway 10 and railroad tracks to get to the playground on the south side. Now, the north side has a playground - which will be added onto and have a pirate theme because of the school's mascot.
