Review the Slope Stabilization alternatives here. The existing slopes on east and south sides of the existing playground are an integral component of the park. These slopes are currently eroded and are supported by deteriorating wood retaining walls. A study was conducted this spring to look at options to address the slope conditions. Alternatives include new retaining walls or a naturalized slope. Tell us which alternative you prefer by completing the Park Renovation Survey.
