According to a recent article in the Denver Post, the city of Arvada Colorado is investing in five of its area playgrounds.
By summer’s end, $1.2 million will have been spent on new, Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant equipment for the playgrounds. Each of the five playgrounds will have it’s own unique character, explained an Arvada Colorado senior landscape architect, and some of the playground installations will include a climbing wall, and undulating sidewalk, and a sand area with buried dinosaur bones.
Besides making the parks ADA compliant and replacing worn out equipment, the city hopes to also provide a more interesting and engaging experience for the children, a place where they can learn and explore, the article noted. The playgrounds will also each receive new landscaping, benches and sidewalks.
The funding for the playground upgrades, expected to take place by late August, comes from the city’s capital improvement program. This year, the city also plans to complete the more than $16 makeover of Ralston-Central Park, transfer a bridge from that park to another one and provide a trail to the bridge at its new location.
