Bond: Play Piece Replacements and Drainage Repair

Project Update - Spring 2018

PP&R is currently setting up contracts for installation, ordering play equipment, and completing the design for drainage repairs and ADA pathway improvements. We will add more detailed schedule information for the installations and repair work once available.

Project Overview

Thanks to funding from the Parks Replacement Bond, new play pieces will be installed at 19 playgrounds, and drainage repairs will be made at 10 playgrounds. In recent years, many play pieces have been removed from parks due to lead paint and other safety concerns. Read more about the Lead Paint Control Program here. Some sites will also receive ADA access improvements.

Play Piece Replacement Locations  (Installation: Summer 2018 - Winter 2018/19)
