Glenhaven Park

  • Opening of new playground at Glenhaven Park - October 19, 2019

  • Worn play equipment at Glenhaven Park

  • Swings removed due to lead paint

  • Existing playground at Glenhaven Park


Project Overview

Glenhaven Park had some of the oldest play equipment in the parks system, dating back to the 1970s. Several play pieces were removed due to lead paint content. Improvements including a new playground, new ADA-compliant pathways, and public art were completed in Fall 2019 at Glenhaven Park, thanks to funding from the Parks Replacement Bond and a contribution from System Development Charges.
