Originally installed circa 1968, the playground has seen a few changes over the decades, with the last installation being in the early 1990s. The City’s Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department announces that work on the playground replacement project will begin today.
The playground will be closed from Friday, February 7 to May 1, 2020.
