This project will reconstruct the play equipment, fencing, and spray shower area at Challenge Playground.

Due to COVID related impacts, this project may experience schedule delays. We will update the capital tracker as more information becomes available.

Project Update: The procurement completion date has changed. Some of the common reasons why a completion date has changed are: the vendor, project and/or contract documents are under review, the agency is securing additional funding to award, or it was in the City’s best interest to extend the bid opening date.
