The potential loss of a popular playground in Williamstown has become an opportunity to rehabilitate the south end of the town's Linear Park thanks to the work of a trio of volunteers and one anonymous donor.

IBerkshires.com reports that now those volunteers are revving up a fund-raising campaign to help maximize the park's potential and ensure recreational opportunities for youngsters for years to come.

Last year, a safety inspection at the park turned up deficiencies in its outdated and aging play equipment, forcing the town to decide to remove the play structures.
