Helen Diller Playgrounds at Civic Center – Update!

Since our last community meeting we have incorporated feedback and started going through reviews to make sure we meet accessibility codes, playground safety, structural engineering requirements and maintenance requirements among other key considerations. We have also been focusing on developing the lighting design.

Based on these reviews the design has evolved but still kept the original intent and features that were presented at the last community meeting.

The latest design is posted on the Rec Park website:


We will be presenting this plan to the Historic Preservation Commission on June 17th and Rec Park Commission in July. After those approvals, we can move into detailed design and hope to be able to start construction in the summer of 2016 and have the playgrounds open in 2017.
