Project Overview

Outdated, inaccessible play structures, picnic tables, benches, a drinking fountain, and paved paths will be replaced in the playground area at Kenton Park, thanks to funding from the Parks Replacement Bond. Parks will also be making minor restroom improvements for ADA accessibility as a separate project.
