North Park Blocks

North Park Blocks Playground


Thanks to the voter-supported Parks Replacement Bond, this project will replace the aging play structures at the North Park Blocks playground. The work will also include a new accessible play surface and pathway improvements. 


April 2018 - After extensive permitting process delays, the project is now out for bid. Assuming a successful bid, construction is anticipated to start in summer 2018.

We’ll post another update when we know more details about the start of construction and when the playground at the North Park Blocks will be closed for use.

July 2016 - The design team has been refining the plans and continues to develop the construction drawings. This drawing shows the current layout for the playground area.
