The village of Waddington recently celebrated the grand opening of a new ship-themed playground along its waterfront in Island View Park. It opened with a ribbon cutting held before the first concert in its summer concert series. Among the playgrounds features are a climbing wall and a telescope pointed towards to the St. Lawrence River.
