Terra Bella's first playground opens

The Fresno BeeJune 11, 2014 

Terra Bella's first playground and recreational area opened Tuesday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Setton Farms, a major local employer, built the Setton Pistachio Recreational Area and Playground for about $500,000-$600,000.

"We just felt it was the right time to give back to the community that has been so supportive," said Lee Cohen, general manager of the Setton pistachio processing plant in the town of about 3,000 in southeast Tulare County.

County government installed a crosswalk and quickly approved permits, he said.

In April, employees and community members helped install playground accessories, benches, picnic tables, mulch, wood chips and plants. The recreational area also has a barbecue pit and a toddler play area.
