Nick's Kids Playground to be dedicated

Friday, December 7, the City of Tuscaloosa will dedicate the newly constructed Nick's Kids Playground alongside the Black Warrior River on the River Walk.

The dedicated is set for 11 AM. Nick and Terry Saban along with representatives from the City of Tuscaloosa will be on hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony.

Nick's Kids worked with Alabama Forever, the City of Tuscaloosa, Almon Associates, Hammill Recreation, the Junior League of Tuscaloosa and Mike Chambers to make the playground a reality.

Friday's event also will highlight the 22 recipients of the Nick's Kids Teacher Excellence Awards. This award recognizes elementary and middle school teachers who have not only exhibited excellence in the classroom but have supported their students outside the school setting and served the Tuscaloosa community as a whole. Each recipient was nominated by their school principal and chosen by a committee at Nick's Kids.
