Adult Playground & Unsightly Mound Removal [Pacific & Clark Park updates]


All you need to know about Clark Street Park is posted in that image above. Plus the bus needs a steering wheel, the spring duck (I think it was a duck) has been missing for a while and boy does that park need some shade. What can we do with the grassy area by the bay? I always kinda liked how it was open-space, but I guess it can be better utilized.

2015-06-29 20.33.11In the meantime, Pacific Playground is closed for renovations. There used to be a giant ship, but that sank years ago during one of the hurricanes. Folks have obviously been sneaking in to the park, but I’m not telling you to do that. I’m just saying it’s been happening.

Anyway, bids to renovate have been put out and an ‘adult playground’ element will be added. The below image shows an idea of this, which was presented by a resident at one of the park meetings. I love the idea of adults being able to play in a playground too. I’ll post more info on all this as soon as I can. unnamed

  1. The pacific playground has been closed for a long time now. I send an email to the parks and recreation dep’t asking why it could not be left open until renovations begin. No answer was forthcoming

  2. That model at the bottom looks a lot like one of the apparatus’ that used to be at the “wooden playground” at Lido Beach/Camp Anchor. Off to one side of the park was a big wooden structure with slides and a jumpy bridge. Connected to that structure were the pilings with the bars, then a proper set of monkey bars on the other side of that – pretty much laid out like in the above picture. I might have a photo somewhere, I’ll try to dig it up.

    But that was *the best* playground ever. Even with the occasional splinters, which just meant that you were really having fun. I miss it 🙁

  3. Everyone has been ignoring the “park is closed” signs at Pacific playground since they were put up. Every single day there are parents in there with their children (my living room window faces the park). Apparently there isn’t a very secure lock on the gate-

  4. When are these renovations supposed to be happening? I take my 4 year old son to the park every week and he wants to desperately ride his bike around the “boardwalk”. I even took time and shoveled the front portion off so he and anyone else could ride on it without getting stuck in the sand.
