Golden Gardens playground construction underway
Golden Gardens is getting a new pirate-themed playground to be completed in time for summer.
Construction on the Parks and Green Spaces Levy project started last week and the site is now fenced as site grading and earthwork has started.
According to the project's website, most of the earthwork and drainage will be completed in the first couple of weeks. Installation of irrigation and the building pathways and seating walls will follow before the new play equipment can be installed.
The new play area will be located on the lawn between the bathhouse and the parking lot. It includes a variety of play equipment grouped around the theme of a beach adventure.
The old play area won't be removed until will the new play area is complete, which is scheduled for mid July, 2011.
Construction will occur weekdays with hours approximately 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Pathways to the bathhouse will remain open. Construction staging will impact about a dozen parking spaces in front of the bathhouse and the sidewalk adjacent to the parking lot.
