An East Tennessee community will soon enjoy a new playground, thanks to a national contest.
Sweetwater is one of 25 cities that won a $20,000 grant from Dr. Pepper Snapple to build a new playground. Additional community donations made the project possible.
The community came together to assemble the playground over the weekend, but they weren't able to finish it because of the rain. Crews returned to wrap up the project on Thursday.
The playground is located near the city's pool and recreational fields.
