Carkeek Park Playground Renovation

Updated: August 18, 2022

Summer 2022

This project will replace the existing play area and make accessibility improvements to the pathway from the parking lot to the play area. This project will use synthetic safety surfacing in the play area. If necessary, this project will also hire an artist to repaint the Salmon Slide. All improvements will meet accessibility and stormwater requirements.

This project has been delayed and is now expected to complete construction in late 2023. Further opportunities for public input on designs will be announced Winter 2022/23.

This project's scope has been expanded and will now include an internal renovation of the comfort station building to meet all current accessibility requirements.
