Crosland Park Playground Reopens with New Playground Equipment

Monday, July 18, 2022

Crosland Park Playground, located at 1676 Aldrich St. Northeast, and Kalmia Hill Park Playground, located at 3311 Summit Dr., have officially opened for play! Replacing the formerly outdated playground equipment at these neighborhood parks has been in the works since the Capital Project Sales Tax voter referendum in 2018. Work on the playground replacement projects began in April 2022 and included removing the existing play structures, resurfacing the ground, and installing brand new equipment. The local community voted on playground design options in the Fall of 2021, selecting amenities and color features.

“We are excited to welcome children and families back to these parks. Play is essential to healthy development in kids,” stated Parks, Recreation & Tourism Director Jessica Campbell. Since 1985 America has celebrated July as Park and Recreation Month. The National Recreational and Park Association aims to raise awareness of the essential services that parks and recreational professionals provide to communities across the U.S. Visit one of the renovated playgrounds to help us celebrate Park and Recreation Month and create a new park memory!
