  • Make needed improvements, enhancements and additions to the dated playground, now at least 30 years or older.
  • Upgrade or replace remaining equipment. (Some of the equipment has been removed when deemed unsafe.)
  • The playground needs to be ADA compliant and inclusive.
  • This project has become even more critical for our community and visitors particularly in the time of COVID/OMICRON, where outside play is encouraged.
