Construction Updates and Photos

All of the equipment is in and the crew is putting the finishing touches on the landscaping.
Two of the slides were installed specifically for children with
cochlear implants. The regular plastic slides create static
and interfere with the implant. To avoid overheating, shades
will be placed over the two slides.

The earthwork is 90% complete – preparing the area for the three pods, splashpad, restroom, parking, etc. The plumbing, sewer, storm water and electrical needs are nearly complete. The restroom facility will be finished next month when the weather is warm enough to paint.
One-third of the hard surface work (asphalt and concrete) was finished before winter hit, and the rest will be completed in the coming months. Of course, this all depends on the weather – rain and snow will delay construction.
The playground equipment and safety surface will be the last things to go in. The safety surface is a synthetic grass that is very sturdy, and has four inches of cushion below to make it a perfect playground surface.
The bathroom facility being built.
Earthwork preparing the site.
All of the old playground equipment is being relocated.
