Adventure Playground Renovation project
Since 1983, Adventure Playground has offered summer camp opportunities and school year programming to children, but this one-of-a-kind facility is aging. The public input portion of the Master Plan process was designed to receive feedback from residents on future site improvements, amenities, and new program opportunities.
Several project meetings have occurred including public outreach workshops. At the February 21, 2019 Parks and Recreation Commission meeting, a final draft of the conceptual plan was presented to the Commission. A summary of the project and a color conceptual plan is also available by viewing the February 21, 2019 Parks and Recreation Commission agenda.
At the March 21, 2019 Parks and Recreation Commission meeting, the Commission approved the Adventure Playground Master Plan conceptual design. The report is available by viewing the March 21, 2019 Parks and Recreation Commission agenda.
Following the Parks and Recreation Commission's approval, the Adventure Playground Master Plan was presented and approved by the City Council on April 16, 2019. The report and presentation are available by viewing the April 16, 2019 City Council meeting agenda.
ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND CONCEPTUAL PLAN
Construction plans and specifications were developed and the City Council approved and awarded the project to Lehman Construction, Inc. at the July 20, 2021 City Council meeting. Renovation of Adventure Playground began in September 2021 and is anticipated to be completed in the fall of 2022. The project will improve historically popular amenities including a new zip line, whiffle ball field, waterslide, water features, fort building, and a maze area. New amenities will include a splash pad, onsite restrooms, shade structure, and a treehouse play structure.
Construction continues to progress at Adventure Playground with the building of the three-tower playground structure’s various features, including a large dry slide, tower side panels, and climbing netting. Decorative fencing throughout the site continues to be installed including the main entrance gate. Various pathways throughout the site continue to be formed and prepared for installation of organic lock which will create a natural looking pathway. Unfortunately due to various delays, the re-opening of Adventure Playground is now expected to be in spring of 2023! View the construction video of the progress made to date.
