Last Updated: 09/13/2018

Work is complete on the project to replace the playground at Indian Hills Park - the playground can now be played on!

Finish grading, seeding and matting of the disturbance areas of both the playground and the new asphalt bike path are now complete!
Please help Parks to get grass established in these areas by utilizing the new paths and staying off of the erosion control matting as much as possible - thank you!

BACKGROUND:

Parks began public meetings to discuss the project in advance of the finalization of the budget to keep the planning and construction bidding process on-schedule for construction in 2018.  The first of two meetings was held on October 26th to discuss playground equipment age range, surfacing, proposed project location, timeframe and budget.  Materials from that session can be found at the links, below.

There were no attendees from the neighborhood present at the second meeting (on 11/29 at Sequoya Library) for Indian Hills Park to vote from among two proposals from the manufacturer (Playworld) selected during the first workshop meeting for the specific equipment to be installed at the parkhowever Indian Hills Neighborhood Association stepped forward with a survey conducted via Next Door and received 15 votes, with a majority preference for Option #2, so Parks staff will proceed with that directive.  Both proposals are shown, below, in the colors (dark green and browns) and age-range (5-12) that were also selected during the first workshop session.
