During the week of October 13-18, 1993, hundreds of Harrodsburg and Mercer County volunteers came together to build a creative wooden playground at Youngs Park, behind the shelter house. It was one of the largest group of volunteers since the planning of Harrodsburg's bicentennial in 1974.

However, the Harrodsburg community was in an uproar on Wednesday afternoon when it was announced in The Harrodsburg Herald that the creative playground at Youngs Park had been condemned as hazardous and slated to be removed. Unbeknownst to most people, the demolition had already started. All the photos on this page were taken at approximately 4:00 pm on Wednesday afternoon, August 4, by my husband, Keith Rightmyer.
