New Playgrounds 2022
This summer and fall the Parks Department will be "refurbishing" two existing playgrounds; Fox Hill East and Price Park. Parks Staff has been working with the playground manufacturers of these to playgrounds to use the existing playground posts and foundation (also called footings) but will install new decks, slides, and features. This new method of playground replacement saves the city's financial resources while providing a structurally sound playground to the community. All playgrounds are installed in house by Certified Playground Safety Inspectors who ensure all playgrounds are safe and inviting for all to enjoy.
