  • Northern Trail Park playground replacement
    • As part of our annual playground replacement program, the playground at Northern Trail Park is being replaced this year.
    • The new equipment was purchased late in 2018 through a grant that the city received from the manufacturer, Game Time.
    • To begin the replacement process the old playground was removed May 22 and donated to “Kids Around the World,” a local nonprofit group that re-manufactures and finds new homes for the equipment. The new playground installation is scheduled to begin June 10 and should be completed by the end of June.
    • Here is a glance at what the new playground equipment will look like:
