Zachary Reyna Memorial Playground Opening

LABELLE, FL. -- The Zachary Reyna Memorial Playground Grand Opening is scheduled for November 8th in LaBelle. 

The Hendry LaBelle Recreation Board has been on a mission to create a playground that fits the needs of the children of LaBelle. The Board currently has playgrounds in LaBelle, but they hold no more than 20 kids at a time and are targeted for one specific age group. 

This new playground is a playground that is modified to fit the needs of all age groups, and for more than forty kids. The playground has a play area for children ages 2-5, an area for kids 5-12, and fitness equipment for adults.

The playground was named after Zachary Reyna who passed away last year of a brain eating amoeba. His parents, Jesse Reyna and Betsy Villarreal, who are part of our playground committee, have been attending meetings and helping with the construction of the playground. 

The Grand Opening is to help the Rec. Board raise funds to pay off the playground equipment. The recreation board is not only striving to improve our parks, but to improve the quality of life for the people of LaBelle who are hard working, dedicated, and deserve a safe place to bring their children. 

The playground is at the Community Civic Park located at 800 Jaycee Lions Drive, just behind LaBelle Elementary School. Festivities start at 8 am and will continue until 4 pm. Ribbon cutting Ceremony from 11:30-12 pm.
