Eastern Kentucky's first completely universal playground is now under construction at Pikeville's Bob Amos Park.
80 thousand dollars worth of playground equipment is being installed. The chairman of Hillbilly Christmas in July says it will take about 30 days to complete. Once the playground is finished, a handicap accessible surface must be installed before anyone can use it.
"We're right now around 20 thousand dollars on phase 2 so we need about 80 thousand to make phase 2 a reality," said Jimmy Kinney, the chairman for Hillbilly Christmas in July.
