Repairs Update, July 30, 2019:
Starting this Thursday, August 1, a small area in the northeast corner of the playground at Couch Park will be closed for some repairs. The gravel area under the tall log structure will be replaced with poured-in place rubber surfacing (similar to the rest of the playground surfacing). A lot of the gravel has been migrating out of this area onto the rubber surfacing, so this will make the whole area easier to maintain.
Fencing will be up in this area from August 1 – August 7. After that, we request that everyone stays out of the area until August 10 to allow the surfacing to cure. Please encourage everyone to observe the signage and stay out of this area to help make the repairs a success. The rest of the playground will remain open for play, including the main ramp to the fort, climbing structures, and swings.
We have had a few questions about the rope swing. We removed it earlier this summer after an injury occurred. Staff will be out on site next week to do some further assessment. We do not have a timeline yet for re-installing the swing, but we want you to know we are looking into it. Safety is, of course, our highest priority.
