The fences are down at the Willow Park playgrounds!
On Tuesday, the new playgrounds at Willow Park passed their certification audit, and Town Buildings and Grounds crews were on hand first thing on Wednesday to remove the fencing from around the playgrounds. Within minutes, our first families were on hand checking out the new equipment!
Some additional work remains. We are still waiting on the swings to be installed, and there are a few punch list items that will require us to do some additional work on the playgrounds in the future. That might require some brief closings to do that work, but we will strive to have that happen during low use times of the day/week.
We are incredibly grateful to the community for their patience and understanding on this long awaited project. We also want to remember and thank those original volunteers and donors who gave us the first version of the playgrounds back in 1999. The donor bricks remain as the official entrance to the new playground in their honor.
