An $800,000 renovation to Riverside Gardens in Leo-Cedarville was celebrated during a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday. Among the additions are swings and playground equipment, a splash pad and "play creek," two lighted sand volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, a pond and concrete paths.The Department of Natural Resources provided a $200,000 matching grant that was more than doubled by the Leo-Cedarville community through a loan from IAG Bank and Community Enhancement and Development Income Tax (CEDIT) funds.

Lights on the volleyball courts will come on automatically at dusk and turn off at 10 p.m.

Activities throughout the summer include concerts nearly every Friday evening at the Grand Gazebo starting May 30 with the Leo High School marching band and concluding Aug. 15 with a car show and a performance by Joe Justice. For performance times and dates, see www.leocedarville.com.
