WILMINGTON — Volunteers from in and around Wilmington returned to “Storm the Castle” beginning Thursday morning to complete the construction of Castle Park II playground at David Williams Park.

Twenty-five years ago community volunteers built the first Castle Park; soon the kids of Clinton County will enjoy an all-new one thanks to many volunteers and generous donations.

With an estimated 80 percent of the job complete, volunteers are needed to finish it during build days through Saturday.

About 40 volunteers per shift are needed to get the park finished — first shift from 8 a.m. to noon, second from 12:30-4:30 p.m. and third from 5-8 p.m.
