While Gardnerville Ranchos tykes are already breaking in the new play equipment at Aspen Park, the county has scheduled a ceremony 11 a.m. Feb. 15.

"We were doing the final walk-through and there were 10 kids waiting to use the equipment," Community Service Director Scott Morgan said.

The new equipment was ready to go on Jan. 31.
