The City hosted a groundbreaking ceremony earlier this week on Tuesday, October 5, at Adventure Playground to celebrate the extensive renovation project now under construction. As the home of the City’s most popular recreation program since 1983, the City is investing over $7 million to give it a new life for the next generation and expand its use to even more residents throughout the year.
The renovation will elevate the unique spirit of freedom and creative play that makes Adventure Playground special while preserving the park’s “get your hands dirty” character. The project includes several exciting amenities: an updated multi-use/whiffle ball field, zip line, fort building area, and brand new additions like a large natural-looking splash-pad, a double water slide, a large playground with elevated catwalks, and more.
Once reopened, Adventure Playground will become a year-round destination where kids can enjoy most of the park’s amenities whenever they please. The City will also continue to host summer camps on site where kids can experience the same kinds of fun that many of their parents remember. The project is scheduled to be complete in Summer 2022.
