Riverfront Park gets new playground equipment

Jon Hutchinson
Staff Reporter


Cottonwood is replacing playground equipment in Riverfront Park. The city has already rebuilt playground furniture at Garrison Park. But the 15-year-old equipment needs to be fully replaced.

The city is buying two set-ups, one intended for children ages 2 through 5 and a second unit for children between ages 5 and 12.

Assistant Development Services Manager Morgan Scott asked the council for direction since the two pieces of equipment combined are too large for the space now used by the older equipment. The larger structure would remain in the same location. But staff proposed that the structure for smaller children be place east of the ramadas.

Randy Garrison was concerned about the placement north of the ramadas. He suggested that sometimes adults want to used the ramadas away from any children and the adjacency of the play equipment might create a conflict.

The council instead suggested that a future ramada be built separately, but that the new equiptment be placed near the ramadas.
