New Madrid city employees worked to level out gravel being placed in the playground under construction at the Mill Street park. A special area is being set aside for toddlers featuring smaller playground equipment while other equipment will be available for older children as well. According to Steven Medlin, director of parks and recreation for New Madrid, the move consolidates the playground equipment in one area and provides a safer play area for children.
