A Miami Twp. park that was closed nearly three years ago for lead contamination is set to reopen Friday.
Layer Park at 4999 Cordell Drive will host a “grand re-opening” event from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., according to Miami Twp.
The free event will feature a number of events, including the opportunity to play basketball with police officers, a treasure hunt, the chance to explore a fire truck, a raffle, games, a hula hoop contest and more.
High concentrations of lead were found in and around the Cordell Drive park in early 2016. The park has not been reopened since late 2015, when it closed for the season. Lead levels discovered in the soil were found to be 60 times the levels considered safe, according to the federal EPA. The $3-million cleanup project took around 120 days to complete.
