One of the larger Neighborhood Parks Program projects involves the installation of new playground equipment in 11 neighborhood parks. The new equipment is designed for ages five through 12 and is ADA-accessible. Once the new equipment is in place, new safety surfacing will be added to the play areas. The size and design of each playground will vary from park to park, but each will include a variety of climbing, balancing, sliding and spinning elements.
