This project will reconstruct the plaza and adjacent seating area in Athens Square Playground. The cheek walls on either side of the two ramps will be reconstructed and a new ramp will be constructed between the seating area and the plaza. New handrails will be installed, 2 1/2 foot fencing will be placed around plant beds, plant material will be replaced as needed, and a trench drain will be installed near the spray shower to keep water from flowing onto the safety surface.
