One of the community priorities for Patterson Park identified in the 2016 survey conducted by FoPP was improvements to the playground.
The two playscapes at Patterson are about 15 years old and we need to plan for their replacement in the next five years. In the meantime, we would like to add new freestanding pieces of equipment that provide fresh interest to kids of all ages. Members of the FoPP executive committee met with Landscape Structures and We Build Fun, two commercial playground companies recommended by PARD, over summer 2017 to explore options for a playground addition. The following recommendation balances cost and timelessness, and provide new challenges to younger and older children.
Project: Add circular monkey bars and 1 or 2 low spinners to Patterson Park playground. Proposed site is area between current layout of the playground and the restrooms which is currently bare, but held play equipment in the past. Add new seating wall around it and steps leading down to the bathrooms.
