The new equipment includes swings, rubber surfacing, slides and climbing apparatuses for pre-school age children 2 to 5 years of age; as well as equipment for children 5 to 12 years of age. Shade canopies will also be installed to provide sun protection for children and to reduce the surface temperature of the playground equipment during the hot summer months.
The City Council approved funding in this year’s Capital Improvement Project budget, in the amount of $118,170 for this play equipment. The source of funding is dedicated Park Funds that cannot be utilized for General Fund expenditures. The City qualified for a forty-five percent (45%) grant from GameTime (manufacturer) for the purchase of this play equipment, with a cost savings of $34,069.
