E. C. Hughes Playground Renovation

Updated: January 31, 2019

Winter 2018/19

The EC Hughes project went out to bid in January 2019. The project was packaged with the Puget Ridge Play Area Renovation project to make the project more enticing to bidders. Bid opening will be in February and we anticipate awarding the project and beginning construction in March. The play area will be closed during construction.

Thank you to everyone who attended the second public meeting on June 13 and gave input on desired final changes to the preferred design. Meeting notes and presentation documents are available for viewing below.

The first meeting, held on April 19, was an opportunity to learn about the project and provide input on play equipment and play area design.

The play area renovation will update play equipment with play structures accessible to children of all abilities, ages 2-5 and 5-12. Additionally, the project will enhance safety and improve play area accessibility in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). 

Play area will be closed during construction. Construction is expected to begin in early 2019 and be completed mid-year 2019.
