On January 10, two playground concepts were presented by Sarah Lerner, the Project Manager from Parks Department. This is based on the survey results from the neighborhood:
Below are the concepts presented. Concept 2 was the preferred option with suggestions provided to be incorporated. The final design is currently in progress and will be shared once Sarah has had a chance to discuss and review with the playground manufacturer, Playworld.
Suggested modifications include the replacement of the following items:
In addition, an inquiry has been made for the installation of additional park benches and potentially replacing one of the swing options (belt or the toddler) with an inclusion swing (e.g. accessible swing).
Assuming these changes are within the budget allotted for the project, a final concept layout will be presented and finalized. Project bids will go out and once a RFP (request for proposal) is accepted, construction will be scheduled. LENA will be working closely with the City on this project to ensure construction schedule does not interfere with our neighborhood events (e.g. summer picnic). The playground is expected to be installed this fall.
