(KPRC)  In LaMarque, Texas playgrounds aren't just for kids anymore. Thursday morning marked the grand opening of the first playground in the state designed specifically for senior citizens.

The new $36,000 playground at Carbide Park is equipped with exercises designed to help seniors maintain their balance and coordination. 

"Now that you're grown up, you're not too old to still play," said 63-year-old LaBrenda Lee, while navigating her way across the balance beam. "This playground is a lot of fun."
