Both South and Pioneer Parks are getting new playgrounds in the spring of 2015! The playgrounds are being completely renovated including new play structures and features. The Park Maintenance Division has begun removing the old play equipment and preparing the sites at both parks now, beginning with South Park.
The old equipment is being removed now because an inspection audit found that several safety issues existed at both playgrounds. Also, many components and play features have had to be removed because they were worn out or had broken parts that are no longer available leaving the play grounds with less and less play value. The playground sites will be fenced off over the winter until new play equipment is installed in the spring.
The projects are being funded with a combination of City Wide Park District Funds and Land and Water Conservation Funds. ... See MoreSee Less
