[ARCHIVED] Playground Design Selected for Coffey Neighborhood Park


The new playground at Coffey Neighborhood Park will be nature-themed with soothing colors and pops of bright color for fun. Representatives from the Coffey Park neighborhood and Coffey Strong recommended the proposal from Ross Recreation Equipment, which is the local distributor of the national playground design company Landscape Structures. The neighborhood committee worked with City staff through a series of meetings and reviewed several playground proposals before making the recommendation. 

The playground includes a tot lot for children ages two to five-years and a second play area for school age children ages five to twelve. The two play areas are next to each other but separated by a pathway and picnic tables. As requested, the playgrounds feature the maximum number of swings possible (6 of them), while still allowing for other play features. 

On September 24th, City Council approved a $3.3 million construction contract with Team Ghilotti to rebuild the five-acre Coffey Neighborhood Park. The first order of business for Team Ghilotti will be to build the pathways and other infrastructure leading to and around the playgrounds. Meanwhile, the City is in the process of purchasing the play equipment, which will come ready to install. The goal is to have the playground equipment installed and the southwest portion of Coffey Neighborhood Park open to the public by the end of 2019. The remainder of the park is set open in Summer 2020. 

“While the timeline is extremely aggressive and weather-dependent, we are all excited for the children and families of the Coffey Park neighborhood to once again enjoy their park as soon as possible,” said Deputy Director of Parks, Jen Santos.
