The project will include replacing the sand with a soft fall material, which will make the park and equipment handicap accessible. To provide a more inclusive play area for all residents, this project would propose to upgrade the soft fall area to a poured in place rubberized surface along with the addition of some accessible play equipment. the project would include ramps as needed to provide access to the soft fall and playground areas.
The project would also add parking spaces along River Street and Hickory Street along with providing additional sidewalk access from the parking areas to the playground.
The project is now nearing substantial completion with the exception of the rain garden.
