Adventure Playground is currently closed while the City evaluates options developed from public comments regarding the appropriate use for the playground area. To date, the City has conducted four public workshops to solicit input on the type of experiences the public would like to consider.

How we got to here!
In 2008, Adventure Playground closed to accommodate construction activities related to modernization and expansion of the University Park Community Center. After the Community Center opened in July 2010, staff and other qualified professionals completed a detailed evaluation of the playground, assessing site compliance with current playground safety standards, water quality requirements and accessibility laws. Due to concerns over user safety and accessibility issues, it was determined that the City could not reopen Adventure Playground without extensive site re-engineering and renovation work.
In November 2010, the City Council allocated funds to provide for site analysis and civil engineering, public design workshops and playground master planning and construction cost estimation.
