Update on Playground Replacements - April 20, 2022

Thanks to the resident feedback we received last year, playground equipment was chosen, and the vendors are scheduled to begin work this spring and summer to install new modern safe playground features in Pete Pettersen Park, Bayview Park and Little Lake Park.

As of now, weather permitting, the installation of the new playgrounds will begin on the following dates:

  • Pete Pettersen Park – last week of May (dependent on the level of ground saturation);
  • Bayview Park – July 4th; and
  • Little Lake Park – July 18th.

There is a chance the installations will take place earlier for Bayview Park and Little Lake Park, however due to unpredictable supply chain delays, we’re expecting it won’t begin before the dates above.

In addition, we have also issued an RFP to identify vendors to install new playground equipment in Mac McAllen Park, Edgehill Park and Tiffin Park. The RFP closes soon and depending on supply and availability, there is the potential for installs to take place in one or more of these parks in 2022 as well.

For more details on the new installs in Pete Pettersen Park, Bayview Park and Little Lake Park, and details on locations for new equipment in Mac McAllen Park, Edgehill Park and Tiffin Park, please see the Replacements & Restorations tab below.

    Quota Park playground restorations have completed. Below are the before and after images. Operations has completed a significant restoration as staff reconstructed and regraded the slope leading to the playground, removed hazardous trees, removed large amount of graffiti from the main structure and benches, repaired and repainted the benches, removed the grass/vegetation and completed a full ground resurfacing, and enhanced the entry pathway. New topsoil was hydroseeded and grass has started growing in the area.

    Playground restorations have begun for playgrounds in the Town of Midland that have passed safety inspections but are in need of upgrading.

    The first to be completed is Gawley Park Playground. This playground has a new big blue slide, and the grounds of both the main structure and swing set were dug out, new sand was added and the areas were regraded. Topsoil and seed were laid around the swing area as regrading was done to provided better drainage.
