WASHINGTON (AP) -- City officials are celebrating the 20th playground renovation under a city effort called Play DC.

Officials will officially re-open the Benning Park Playground on Friday. A total of 32 play spaces across the city were scheduled to be renovated under the initiative. D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray is expected to announce Friday that another eight spaces will be improved.

The Benning Park playground now has a medieval theme. It includes a six-person seesaw, adult fitness equipment, a walking track and refurbished basketball and tennis courts.
