Sidney parks ready for summertime visitors


Brandon L. Summers

At one of Legion Park's ponds Monday, Jaimee Rushman, daughter Peyton Rushman, and Dan Popp, enjoy fishing together.

With school dismissed and warm weather arrived, Sidney's Legion and Deer Run parks are available for visitors.

Some changes have been made to improve guests' experiences, Tom Von Seggern, parks director, said. Among them, playground restrooms are now more handicap accessible.

"We put in a van parking pad and sidewalks to get from the picnic shelter to the restroom and not have to fight the gravel," Von Seggern said. "You can make it across there on concrete now."

While the parks and their features are available to all, etiquette should be followed.

Dogs, for example, should be kept on leashes around playgrounds and at sporting events, Von Seggern said.

"They may enjoy having their dog there but others might be frightened and uncomfortable, so if they have them on a leash it's just better," he said.
