Playground Renovations 2016 Update

What do Andrew W. Pate Park, Florence Buchanan Park, Mayor's Common Park, Roswell Park, Spring Gardens Park all have in common?

They are all undergoing plans to have their playgrounds renovated!

Renovation plans include: accessible asphalt pathways, new play structures and swings, accessible wood fibre safety surfacing surrounding new play structures, new plantings, benches, etc.

Park planning has been completed and construction for all five parks originally scheduled for fall of 2016 has been re-scheduled for the spring of 2017. Pending ground thaw and favourable construction conditions, construction may begin as early as April of 2017.

We are happy to share playground renovation plans and a rendering of the play equipment that is coming to a park near you. Please find a link to each parks’ plans below:

Please note playground installation may vary from plans shown due to budget constraints.
