In 2008 a play structure was installed at the Village by the Park apartments through a community-build effort with volunteers from Crossroads Church. The play structure was funded in part by KaBoom!, the organization that identifies Playful City USA communities.
Del Norte Neighborhood Development Corporation, the managing partner of Village by the Park, is interested in relocating the playground. It now sets west of the apartments and is in a fenced-in area and is rarely used. The proposed new location is on the south side of the complex and can be utilized by families attending sporting events, residents of the Village by the Park and the general public.
City staff inspected the playground and deemed it to be safe and in excellent condition, the city would be responsible for disassembling and reassembling the play structure. Estimated value of playground is $50,000 to $60,000.
It will cost approximately $1,000 for materials associated with the re-installation, including concrete and wood fiber mulch safety surfacing and staff time. Relocation was scheduled for May.
