Too late for this year, but looking really good for spring!
The rubberized base layer for the new playgrounds at Willow Park has been successfully installed. A final top coat will have to wait until warmer weather in the spring before it can be poured.
The new playgrounds hit a stumbling block this past September when problems were discovered with a number of construction issues, most notably with the curbing.
Those issues have all been addressed. New curbing is mostly in place, with a small section to be added in the spring. The other punch list items have also been taken care of.
The Town is committed to making sure that the playgrounds are built in full compliance with all required specifications and we are glad to see this project moving towards final completion.
The town's vendor responsible for building the playgrounds, Play By Design, will return first thing in the spring to finish the job.
We were all disappointed to not have the playgrounds ready this year. We are grateful for the patience and understanding of the community who has waiting so long for this deeply missed community resource.
