Hamilton Park project finished
By DAN KULIN / Staff Writer
Sometimes when Bobbie Elmlinger walks around her Hagerstown neighborhood she feels like Santa Claus.
That's because Elmlinger played a major role in bringing new swing sets, slides and a basketball court to Hamilton Park off Fairview Road.
The city paid for the purchases and installation, which cost about $32,400.
But the idea for the project came from the community through the Northwest Neighbors, Neighborhoods First group. Elmlinger and Ellie Price are co-chairs of the group.
Elmlinger said the group chose to revamp the park because most of the equipment was old and many complained that the park wasn't better.
