PLAYGROUND UPDATE: Mallon Park gets modern, modular equipment

Parks crew installing new play structures at Mallon Park

With summer coming up fast, Parks and Recreation crews are working hard to finish the Mallon Park Playground upgrade.

The old playground equipment has been replaced by a bright green-and-purple, modular design with an engineered wood fiber surface and an adaptive swing unit. It also has a play structure that doubles as an interactive outdoor public art piece which children will enjoy climbing.

The adaptive swing unit will create a more inclusive park. Its surfac­ing has a “knitted” layer that will support various mobility devices, including wheelchairs, crutches, and walkers.

The new playground is being installed in-house by Parks crews and should be ready for play in May, weather permitting. Mallon Park is located at 2840 Millwood Drive at Josey Lane.
