The playground at City Park will be closed for several weeks while new playground equipment is installed.
City staff plan to begin removing the existing playground equipment at City Park during the week of March 20. The removal of the old equipment and installation of the new equipment may take up to 60 days. During this time, the playground will be closed to visitors.
This new equipment, as well as playground equipment that will be installed at the future Veterans Park site, was purchased through GameTime’s matching grant program. The grant allowed the City to purchase two playgrounds for the cost of one within the year’s capital improvement program budget.
Both new playgrounds have several slides, climbing features, and shades to keep surfaces cool in the sun. The playground at Veterans Park will be installed once the design for the park’s layout is confirmed.
