Carkeek Park Playground Renovation

Updated: January 24, 2024

Early 2024

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the meeting on December 2! 

This project will replace the existing play area and make accessibility improvements to the pathway from the parking lot to the play area. This project will use synthetic safety surfacing in the play area. If necessary, this project will also hire an artist to repaint the Salmon Slide. All improvements will meet accessibility and stormwater requirements. This project’s scope has been expanded and will now include an internal renovation of the restroom building to meet all current accessibility requirements.
