The Cascade Park playground equipment replacement project begins Monday, May 23. The park will remain open, but the existing playground, new playground and part of the cobblestone driveway on 126th Avenue SW will be closed through July.
The new equipment will offer more age-appropriate options. In addition, the playground will be moved to allow better drainage and increase visibility.
For more information, visit our current projects page.
Funding for the project comes from the Capital Improvement Fund.
The Cascade Park project is one of three projects currently underway and managed by our Parks and Natural Resources Planning Division. Work is also underway at Kennydale Beach Park, scheduled for completion by Memorial Day weekend, and Kiwanis Park (completion December 2022). Other projects are planned this year for Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park and Philip Arnold Park.
