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:
8:00 A.M.-5:00 P.M.
