LEAD — The Manuel Brothers Park in Lead, which is soon to be renovated, will include an unusual feature seen in only a few cities around the country.
The Lead City Commission voted Monday to extend a temporary loan to a group raising money for a set of musical devices intended for the use of children at the park.
The musical devices will be large-scale, outdoor equivalents of common and not-so-common musical instruments. They will allow children to experiment with making sounds on the drums, pagoda bells, chimes, xylophones, and lily pad cymbals, which will be installed next to the park’s playground equipment.
City Administrator Mike Stahl said the new feature will create a musical park which will be absolutely unique.
