Kimbell Playground Renovation-update 09/2014

Demolition and excavation has catapulted this park into full construction.

Building: The roof eaves have been trimmed back to the building face and is currently being framed.  We discovered a bit of dry rot at the front entrance and replaced all the wood surrounding the glass. The skylights and courtyard will  receive a new roof.

Playground: Grading the site and staking the playground and the paths

Sports Field: The field is open for the duration of construction; however, intermittent closures of certain entrances will be limited. The entrances from Pierce/Ellis and Steiner at O’Farrell (a new entrance) will always be open. The entrance from Pierce and O’Farrell is open.
