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.
One of the main play structures at Irving Park's playground will be closed for repairs beginning Wednesday, May 9. While this work is occurring, the swings, teeter totters, and smaller play structure will still be available for play. We hope to have the work done and play area reopened by the end of May. Our playground maintenance staff have ordered a replacement slide and are awaiting its arrival. Once it comes, it will be installed, and the work includes concrete pouring. The slide replacement work has extended the length of this closure. We apologize for the delay, but the play structure will be better than ever when completed!
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.
