The work is expected to cost about $18,000 and the work should be compete within two months.

The metal slide and monkey bars are already repainted. The estimated $3,000 paint job is to eliminate safety concerns from flaking paint and rust. The chains and swings will soon be replaced on the swing set for about $800.

Highlands plans to add two concrete picnic tables on a concrete pad to the park costing $5,324.
