The Department’s Playground Renovation Program replaces deteriorating play equipment and provides small scale enhancements in playgrounds and parks throughout the City. The program ensures that the City’s 35 play areas are scheduled to comply with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) standards for Public Playgrounds. Many playgrounds have outdated equipment that no longer comply with current safety standards. Renovations include conversion from an engineered mulch surfacing to a more durable and resilient rubberized surfacing made from recycled rubber.
Renovations are determined according to play equipment conditions and renovation history. Renovations typically occur every 15-20 years, with minor upgrades and repairs as needed. The renovation schedule is submitted each year for Capital Funding approval. The most recent schedule is from the FY2016 Approved Capital Budget and is subject to change.
