SUFFOLK, Va. — Suffolk Parks & Recreation hosted a ribbon cutting Wednesday, June 12th for the city's first Inclusive Playground at the Kids Zone Community Playground.

The new playground officially opened after the 2:30 p.m. ribbon cutting at Lake Meade Park, located at 201 Holly Lawn Parkway behind Kroger.
