Background Information

This project will replaced the existing playground equipment and park furnishings that were 20 years old and had reached the end of service life. The new equipment fits within the existing footprint and has age-appropriate features for two primary age groups: 2- to 5-year-old and 5- to 12-year-old youth. Community feedback helped determine which features the new equipment should have.
