FAYETTE—A concrete pad for basketball, four-square, hopscotch and other games has been installed in the Fayette Town Park.

The town has worked for five years to raise the funds needed for the project, and through auctions, fundraisers and donations, the long-held dream of a basketball court at the town park became a reality on July 16.

Allen King, Scott Bartholomew, Jed Bartholomew and Quinn Smyeer were noted for their work on the project.

The basketball court joins a collection of retro playground equipment like seesaws, merry-go-rounds and monkey bars, popular with locals and visitors alike.
