Repairs upcoming for rubberized playgrounds

Repairs upcoming for rubberized playgrounds

Coffee Park


Not that many years ago, all our playgrounds had woodchip playing surfaces. In 2009, to create safe and easily accessible playgrounds for all ages and abilities, the City began installing rubberized surfaces at all our playgrounds.  Coffee Park was the first to receive the upgrade.  A few years later all our playgrounds featured this poured in-place surface.  Understandably, due to environmental conditions and heavy use, many of the   surfaces have faded or are worn and cracked.  To ensure level and safe play areas, the City Council recently approved funding to resurface the playgrounds at Coffee, Curtis, Davis and Williams Parks. This effort, needed every four to five years, involves filling cracks, patching existing damage, adding surface material where needed and resealing.  This work helps protect the City’s sizeable financial investment in our playgrounds and assures parents and caregivers that visits are as enjoyable as possible.  The resurfacing project is scheduled to begin this month.  Weather permitting, all repairs will be completed by early spring.  Once repairs are completed on the four parks mentioned, similar funding will be budgeted for the remaining parks that feature rubberized playing surfaces.

Parks with rubberized playgrounds:
 
  • Burleson
  • Caruth
  • Coffee
  • Curtis
  • Davis
  • Germany (recently surfaced fitness area)
  • Smith
  • Walt Humann
  • Williams
