Setting up a backyard play set

Outdoor play is a highlight of childhood. Being able to run, jump and swing outside is an excellent form of exercise and a way for kids to interact with their friends.
One staple of youthful play is spending time on a play set in the backyard. Parents without a play set in the backyard need only look into a neighboring yard with a play set to witness these prime congregation spots for the neighborhood children. And play sets don't just benefit kids.
Parents who want to keep tabs on their children can do so much more easily with a backyard play set, and knowing they are having fun close by alleviates worries.

Fisher said the Dallas branch handled the 2008 economic crisis the best, and that the Ruston community was also one of the most well managed areas in the nation.

Furry Fun Walk a barking success

032812 rpar c.jpg

It may be March, but it felt like the Dog Days of Summer last Saturday as more than 300 local canines and their owners swarmed Cook Park to participate in the Fifth Annual Furry Fun Walk, sponsored by Ruston Parks and Recreation.
It was a barking success.
The annual event was the largest in the six-year history, which includes a walk along the trail in the park, gifts, playtime for the animals, giveaways for the animals and their owners and plenty of socializing. The event has been popular in the past, moving from the park offices to Cook Park two years ago to create a better environment for the dogs. The open area of the park allows for more playing and socializing for the pets.
