Lake View Heights Park Playground Replacement - Contract: 2019 Playgrounds - Group 2

Last Updated: 09/20/2019

The replacement of the playground at Lake View Heights is anticipated to begin in September 2019!

Two community meetings were held to discuss the new play equipment, playground surfacing and associated site improvements.


The first opportunity for input from the neighborhood on the design of the playground was held at:

2019 Playgrounds - Group 2 Workshop
Monday, November 12, 2018 at 6:00 pm - Emerson Elementary School Cafeteria (2421 East Johnson Boulevard)

At this session the replacement of the existing equipment, surfacing and benches were discussed during the break-out/table session with Parks staff. Attendees at the session learned that all of the equipment, surfacing, and benches will be replaced with the project. There were no attendees specifically for Lake View Heights Park, so Parks staff will continue outreach to gather input. An accessible path will be added connecting the playground to the existing park sidewalk.

On January 17th, 2019, at Black Hawk Middle School, Parks Division staff held a second meeting to gather neighborhood input on potential playground equipment options.

Two potential playground options were presented and discussed with meeting attendees.

The selected option by attendees was Option 1 with the addition of a spinning feature. An updated image will be posted when available.

Construction will occur in the summer of 2019.
