Project Description

The goal of this project is to renovate the existing play area space, including new play equipment, ADA improvements, benches, and seating options. Renovated elements will meet current safety and accessibility standards.

Some of the elements we hope to improve are: replacing the play area equipment, including the climber, whirl, and spring toys, and possibly the swings (the newly replaced zipline will be retained); replacing the play area safety surfacing; adding accessible picnic tables, benches, and other site furnishings; improving ADA accessibility to the play area and the adjacent portion of the park; and consideration of trees to begin the park's next generation of these green assets.
