Residents recently had the opportunity to help decide the specific pieces of playground equipment at the park. Feedback was collected online via survey and at an in-park community meeting on Tuesday, August 16. Attendees voted on different playground designs and discussed additional ideas for the park. 

The feedback collected will help decide what equipment to order for construction in 2023.
