The large and small playground structures at Fischer Park will be temporarily closed from April 18th – May 9th as contractors work to replace the park’s existing play structures. The City’s contractor, Fun Abounds, will be replacing the existing equipment in both the small and big kids’ playground areas so that the new equipment can be installed. That new equipment includes:
- A corkscrew slide
- A large climbing boulder
- Climbing net repairs
- Inclusive play equipment, like:
- Musical instruments
- Wheelchair transfer on play equipment
- A rocker
- And poured in place surfacing
Please note that the Splashpad, swing sets, and Grand Pavilion will not be affected by the closures and will remain open during these renovations.
“We are really looking forward to having these new play structures at Fischer Park,” said Parks and Recreation Director Stacey Dicke. “And we appreciate the patience from residents and visitors while we make these upgrades, which will make these play areas more inclusive and accessible.”
This approximately $260,000 project is expected to be complete by May 9th, weather and other factors permitting.
