Chugach Foothills Park Playground Makeover Begins

Crews will be begin to remove the old equipment starting tomorrow, July 11th. The playground will be closed until the replacement project is completed. – per Maeve Nevins-Lavtar, ASLA, Senior Park Planner.

This makeover project will begin in a few phases:
· Phase 1: Remove and replace playground equipment and fall surfacing material (starting July 11th through end of August* – weather dependent)
· Phase 2: Drainage repairs – this phase will include drainage repairs to the parking lot and in other areas that have been affected by poor drainage (tentatively starting in August through fall 2018)
· Phase 3: Vegetation thinning – we will focus on this task during the Volunteer Fix-It Event on Saturday, August 18th, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Maeve will start posting updates to the project website this week.

Volunteers rescued about 40 irises from the Pioneer Drive median garden May 17. Anemones and American flags adorned the median on Memorial Day. Construction crews took a day off from upgrading the street with curbs and gutters and safer parking for Chugach Foothills Park. Some irises will go to other parks.
