The South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District held a grand opening for its new pavilions and playground Saturday at noon.

Located at the Sports Complex on Langley Road, the complex was built to provide shelter for families in case of rain during soccer events.

The park improvements have something for the whole family. There are two large spectator pavilions with tables and barbecue grills when the weather cooperates. The pavilion is accented with landscaping and low-impact rain gardens, while the main plaza includes a stamped concrete pathway and room for the kids to ride their bicycles or practice skating.
