Plans are well underway for a new playground to be built along the diagonal road running through the park. Several public meetings were held and a survey opened to the public.
More information including meeting minutes and presentations can be found under the Washington Park area of Park & Facility Projects Page.
January 2018 update from the project planner:
“The construction contract was approved by City Council and signed on December 19th, 2017. The contractor is Cooper General Contractors. We have scheduled a pre-construction meeting on Wednesday January 17th to kick-off the project. We expect to issue the Notice to Proceed within a week of the pre-construction meeting, and the contractor has 180 calendar days from that time to complete construction. We anticipate the contractor will mobilize and secure the site in late January. Once we have the pre-construction meeting we’ll know more details of the planned construction schedule and sequence of work.”
