Why isn’t the 5-12 playground being replaced?

February 20, 2024

After careful evaluation of the 5-12 playground, the Park District identified that the playground equipment is in good condition and not in need of replacement.  Though, as part of this project, certain elements of the 5-12 playground will be replaced to extend the useful life of the playground and to improve the user experience. Updates to the 5-12 playground include: replacement of the steppers/ground play feature with a new climber, replacement of the woodchip surfacing, the addition of concrete curbing and the replacement of the play panels on the playground structure.
