LA National Guard builds park for Mansfield

Mansfield, LA (KSLA)- Soldiers from the Louisiana National Guard helped build a park for an Ark-La-Tex city.

Members of the Guard's 225th Engineer Brigade braved the hot conditions to build that park in Mansfield. The project took off on July 30th of 2010.

The city first approached the national guard about the project almost 3-years ago and two years later the Guard Bureau gave the 'green light' and work began in June.

The project is expected to wrap-up later on this month
