This project will reconstruct the play equipment, spray shower, synthetic turf field, painted track, lighting, fencing, pavement, plantings and furnishings at Jesse Owens Playground.

Project Update: The contract completion date has changed. Some of the common reasons why a completion date has changed are: issues with a contractor, design error or omission, unexpected field conditions, change in the scope of the project, pending approval and registration of change orders and/or inclement weather.
