The playground will remain closed during construction and anticipated completion is November 1, 2019. The Hoopers Hollow playground renovation includes removal and replacement of the playground equipment and the wood mulch safety surfacing. The existing border will remain and serve as the boundary for the new playground.
The existing playground at Hoopers Hollow Park was installed in 2000 and has reached its life expectancy. Industry standards recommend that playgrounds be replaced periodically based on condition and compliance with changing safety and accessibility standards.
The old playground will be donated to Kids Around the World, a non-profit that repurposes old playground equipment for children living in third-world countries.
Kids Around the World remove existing playground on Sept. 17.
