Crews will soon be installing a new fence at the Waterfront Park playground and the area will be closed to the public until the new fence and gates are installed. On-site notices will be placed prior to fence installation.
The replacement fence will look significantly different than what is currently in place. The new fence will be black powder-coated steel and approximately six feet tall (see photo example).
The current wooden fence was installed in 2004 and is approaching its expected lifespan as well as showing signs of deterioration. Once the new fence is installed, the entire playground area will be enclosed and there will be three self-closing pedestrian gates and one large maintenance access gate. The new fence will meet the current standards for playground fencing and safety standards and will require less maintenance.
The work is anticipated to begin mid-February and completed in two phases. Phase one will include the removal of the existing fence and phase two will be the installation of the new fence. During both phases, the playground area will be closed to the public. This project is expected to last approximately six weeks in duration.
