Playground surface is being upgraded

 

The playground at Forsyth County’s Central Park will be temporarily closed beginning Monday, August 8 to allow for a resurfacing project to be completed. The playground surface is being upgraded from mulch to a rubberized surface that provides a higher degree of safety, entails little to no annual maintenance and is environmentally friendly. The playground is expected to reopen Monday, August 29.


The cost of the enhancement project is $167,756.60 and is being funded by the Parks, Recreation and Green Space Bond approved by voters in 2008. The work will be completed by Bliss Products and Services. 

 

Central Park’s new playground equipment debuted in 2015, featuring a tot-lot area for ages 2 to 5 and an area for ages 5 to 12. The playground includes slides, climbers, swings and more. Improving the playground surface will provide park visitors with an enhanced experience. 

 

Central Park is located at 2300 Keith Bridge Road in north Forsyth County and features athletic fields, tennis courts, picnic pavilions, a disc golf course, a walking/jogging path and a recreation center.

 

Other Forsyth County park playgrounds that already feature a rubberized surface are Chattahoochee Pointe, Coal Mountain Park and Sawnee Mountain Preserve. It is expected that the Coal Mountain Park playground will temporarily close for a few days in August to allow for maintenance to its rubberized surface. The playgrounds at the future Matt Community Park at Settingdown Creek and Lanierland Park are both slated to include the rubberized surface.
