Veterans' Memorial Park Improvements to start next week

July 23, 2015 8:41 AM

Good Morning,

This morning I learned there are improvements that are scheduled for Veterans' Park.  Below is an exerpt from an email I received from the City's Park Department.

Your Alder,



Improvement work will begin next week at Veterans Memorial Park and the playground will be closed during construction. As announced earlier, new playground surfacing will be installed. The existing playground surfacing will be replaced with new rubber mulch that meets the safety standards set forth by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).  The extents of this new surfacing may differ from the existing surfacing to accommodate the playground equipment fall safety zones.
As part of the playground resurfacing, new plastic border timbers will be installed to keep the new playground mulch in place and maintain the necessary depth to meet the CPSC fall zone requirements. Construction is expected to last about a week.
