Playground equipment closed

The playground equipment at Applegate Park has been closed to public use due to safety concerns, according to Public Works Director Ken Elwin. The equipment, which is more than two decades old, has been fenced off from the public.

"Protecting our children's safety is our No. 1 priority,' Elwin said. 'Public Works is working closely with all departments, including the Police Department, to ensure that our local parks stay safe at all times." 

Staff is working on options to replace the playground equipment with new features of a similar size and layout. They will bring the plans to the City Council at its Feb. 5 meeting.

Anyone with questions regarding the equipment can call the Public Works Department at 385-6800.
