Play Area Improvements

The play area at Highland Park Community Center is over 20 years old and in need of replacing. This project will replace the existing play equipment that is inaccessible to those with disabilities and does not meet current CPSC playground safety standards.  Other site improvements such as new site furnishings and landscaping will be considered pending available funding.
