Franklin Park construction complete

Post Date:03/22/2019 10:25 AM
Work is now complete on new playsets installed at Franklin Park. After residents voiced their opinions at public meeting held last July, the city chose to move forward with two new “Blue Boats” playsets—one for ages 2-5 and the other for ages 5-12. The playsets were designed with many inclusive features and an ACTIVE principal of design which includes all six physical fitness elements of play: swinging, climbing, brachiating, spinning, sliding, and balancing activities. The contractor installing the structures worked through the winter months to ensure the park would be ready for spring and summer. A musical playset was installed in December, and the play area for 2 to 5-year-olds was completed in early January. The play area for 5 to 12-year-olds was completed March 11.
