Playground Progress Continues
Construction is nearing the halfway point for the six new playgrounds which will be completed in 2019 through funding from the Community Development Block Grant. The installation of the new playground equipment is nearing completion at two more neighborhood parks. The playground equipment is in place and now reopened to the public at Rest Square located at 2200 Pacific Street. Meanwhile, the contractors are working to complete the installation at Patee Park located at 9th Street and Penn Street, before crews can install the surface on the play area.
Maintenance crews are currently working on the installation of the playground equipment at Seitz Park located at 6800 Esther. Construction is also scheduled for the playgrounds at College Hill Park and Mary Park between now and December. Construction at Hochman Park was completed earlier in the summer and the park has been reopened to the public.
