City’s playgrounds get a makeover

By
March 24, 2011 |

Several of Davis’ park playgrounds will soon be renovated with new equipment, city officials announced this week.

The city carries out play area renovations, as funding allows, to meet current safety and accessibility standards, a city news release said. This year’s projects will renovate play areas at La Playa Park in Mace Ranch, Oak Grove Park in Northeast Davis and Woodbridge Mini Park in South Davis.

In Oak Grove Park, at 1900 Donner Ave., the new equipment will feature a spinning-net “Spinami,” a see-saw, slides and multiple climbing structures, the news release said.

The worn wooden structure at the primary playground in La Playa Park, 3350 La Playa Drive, will be replaced with a custom play structure with slides, climbers, pogo pods and swings.

The young children who use the Woodbridge Mini Park tot lot, 925 La Paz Drive, will enjoy a new play structure with tot rock climbers, slides and two new bouncers, the news release said.

Each project involves removing old play equipment, installing new equipment and then topping off the playground with new cushioning material to enhance safety and to meet the requirements of federal playground regulations under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Existing equipment will be removed immediately before the new equipment is installed, with all three projects slated for completion by early summer.

Color renditions of each new play area may be seen on the city’s webpage at http://www.cityofdavis.org. For more information, contact Parks Supervisor Sandy Dietrich at (530) 757-5656.
