Kenton Park

Project Update

The final draft design for the playground improvements at Kenton Park was shared at Open House #2 on April 13, 2017. Thanks to everyone who attend and gave feedback at the meeting or online. Read a summary of what we heard!

Parks staff will attend the Kenton Neighborhood Association open house and elections event on Wednesday, June 14, 6-8pm at Twilight Theater Company, 7515 N Brandon to give one final update on the design process.

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Outdated, inaccessible play structures, picnic tables, benches, a drinking fountain, and paved paths will be replaced in the playground area at Kenton Park, thanks to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.
