Reger Park Playground Replacement and Lighting- Contract: 2018 Playground Replacements Group 2

Last Updated: 09/18/2018

The playground at Reger Park is being replaced in 2018!

Construction began in late August and is anticipated to be completed by mid-October, 2018.

Parks held the first of two neighborhood meetings on November 20, 2017, to discuss playground equipment age range, surfacing, proposed project location, timeframe and budget. The second meeting was held on January 22, 2018. Park neighbors were asked to review three potential equipment options for the park. Based on meeting attendee comments, a fourth, revised design was developed for final review by the neighborhood. Materials from both meetings and the final equipment design can be found in the links below.

In addition to the playground replacement Parks will be upgrading the area lighting in the park.  The existing single light will be removed and replaced with two new poles and fixtures.  The new lights will be LED targeted lighting and will provide more complete lighting of the entire park without trespassing onto neighboring properties.  The lighting work is scheduled to begin sometime in October and be complete by the end of the year.
