KidsZone Project at Lake Meade Park
The Suffolk Parks and Trails Alliance has begun a fundraising effort to replace the KidsZone Playground at Lake Meade Park. The City installed an inclusive playground in the back in 2019, but older equipment was installed through two fundraising efforts in 2001 and in 2006 led by members of the City’s Early Childhood Development Commission.
That equipment is reaching the end of its useful life. Playground equipment is generally expected to last around twenty (20) years. The members of the Alliance decided to take on the replacement of the City’s largest playground as their first project. Their goal is to raise $300,000 with the City putting an additional $300,000 in their capital budget.
Below is a photo of the current design of the KidsZone playground and a rendering of possible designs for the new playground.
