Soon crews will start

swapping the sand base for wood fibre surfacing. Concrete retaining walls will be built to keep the wood fibres in the play area.

 

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.

Council is also considering replacing the wooden play structure on site.

“The last piece to tackle is the wooden structure,” said Chris Coates, district CAO. “That will be the finishing touch.”
