A reader named Erica wrote in asking about the Georgia Park renovation:
We have been loving the Georgia park playground and all of a sudden showed up yesterday only to find it was being demolished (sad face). The city site said it was sandy damaged & being upgraded. So my question for you: Any info on what type of play structure is going up? Time frame on reopening? Thanks so much!!
I am extremely excited to see that work is underway, the park needs it and the kids need great place to play! I asked City Councilmen Anthony Eramo, who quickly got back to me with this:
The photo (below) does not show the water features, shaded benches and any floral installations.The timing depends on the weather. Hopefully Oct will be mild. If so the contractors will be able to adhere the safety surface properly thus the playground will be basically done fairly quickly.
